Sunny Siesta | A Raw Soup


In Soups, Taste Posted

Avocados aren’t red

And oranges aren’t blue

But this soup is sweet

And so are you…

Okay, okay. I’m not a poet and I know it. 😛

But what I can do is serve you up a sunny smile and a yummy new raw soup. I like a little something sweet after my midday siesta, and this is a delightfully light re-energizer to freshen up any day!

It’s so important to make time for ourselves: to sleep, eat well, move, and worship our body temples. We can only brighten up the world if we keep our own flame lit, right?

So go ahead and treat yourself to some sunshine, a smile, a siesta and soup! Sweet dreaming! <3

INGREDIENTS (1 large serving | source organic and local ingredients if possible!):

  • 2 oranges (approx. 1 cup juice)
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2-4 slices ginger
  • ¼ cup water (only if needed to blend)
  • cayenne (optional)
  • turmeric (optional)
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • pumpkin seeds (to garnish)
  • sesame seeds (to garnish)
  • delight!


Squeeze fresh orange juice into blender. Toss in chopped carrots, avocado, garlic, ginger, water and blend till smooth.

Add a pinch of cayenne if you like it spicy, a pinch of turmeric cause it rocks your body, and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.

Sprinkle on sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and delight! Happy sipping! 😀

    I will try this one – it is sooooo lovely!
    And I am sending you the link to this poem, cause you sort of inspired it when you said “My smile flew off my face into the world” or something like that:

    with Joy, Happiness and lots of Love!

    This is unlike anything I’ve ever seen! I must say that the one time I had cold Gazpacho in Victoria, B.C., I’ve been wanting it again ever since! That’s the only time I’ve had a cold soup, I think…anyway, thanks so much for stopping by my blog last week! 🙂

      Haha my recipes are a bit kooky sometimes! They’re usually the product of me mixing up whatever I have at home to save on a trip to the market! 😛

      I’m glad you liked your cold soup, and I hope you enjoy this one too! It was a pleasure to stop by! x
