Don’t save soup days for cold and wintery nights. When most people think of soup, they think of cozy bowls of deliciousness to warm you up from the inside.
We hope this changes your mind because chilled soups are the perfect refreshing addition to your summertime meals.
Chilled soups are a simple way to eat your fruits or veggies. They are flavorful, simple, and often require zero cooking!
This creamy chilled carrot soup is an easy soup that takes just minutes to make. All you need is a blender to whip this simple soup up.
The secret ingredient in this soup? Drink Simple Maple Water. Many soups use water or broth as a base but using maple water gives the soup a natural antioxidant boost and a slightly-sweet taste.
