Creamy Carrot Soup

This is a lovely soup to serve on a warm summer day.  It is hearty, yet refreshing.  This recipe makes a lot but it is quite easy to cut the recipe in half if you don’t want as much.  On a cooler day, you could gently warm it in your dehydrator or on the stove top.  Don’t allow the soup to boil so that you preserve all of the wonderful enzymes.

Carrot juice is full of carotenes, which is an anti-oxidant that has powerful healing virtues for many diseases.  I will write more information about this soon.
