I mentioned in a recent post that during the winter months, sometimes it can be hard for raw foodists to survive the winter without 'hot' foods. I for one feel this each winter and have found a way of accepting that sometimes 'it don't hurt' to break the rules once in a while. I eat quite a few soups (summer and winter come to that)....generally raw but occasionally warmed up too.

This soup is one of my favorites and it is equally delish both cold (raw) and slightly heated. I actually prefer it cold as it is very filling and creamy and a delight to consume. It's also one of the easiest soups I make too which is always a bonus!!


  • 1/2 C freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 T cashew nut butter (or any nut butter you prefer)
  • 1/2 chopped red onion
  • 1" chunk of peeled fresh ginger (add more or less depending on your taste for ginger)
  • 2 large carrots peeled and chopped
  1. Simply add all the ingredients (starting with the oj first) into a high speed blender
  2. Blend until the texture is smooth and creamy
  3. If you wanted it slightly warmed up, you could always leave the blender on for longer and that will heat up the soup gently or alternatively you could heat up in a pan as with regular soups.

I just realized that this picture above of the end product kind of looks like a medieval 'Peasants' meal with the chunky bread etc lol. It is served with a glass of 'Fruity Water' which I have daily, varying on the seasonal fruits. I simply add the fruits to the water before I start preparing the meal and by the time I sit down to eat, I have a "naturally flavored' water drink to compliment my meal. I am partial to a big chunk of home made bread with my soups too now a days.

Et voila......... So easy to make and hardly takes any time at all, like I said though, you will find it very filling and nourishing and should keep you going for a few hours at least. Enjoy!!!
