Carrot-Avocado-Power Blender Soup

A very tasty, raw, but hot soup, that you can whizz up within a few minutes – this is real ‘fast food’ that is so good for you, too. One of the best investments I made around 20 years ago was my Vita Mix Power Blender (yes, you are reading right – 20 years and still going strong!). And there were not many days in those 20  years when I did not use it. It is immensely versatile. Today there are a number of different makes on the market. A good, affordable one is the HiBlend – well worth saving up for, it pays for itself in a short period of time.


use organic wherever possible; makes 3 – 4 portions.

  • 3 – 4 medium size carrots
  • 1/2  – 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 vegetable stock cube or 1 – 2 teaspoons vegetable stock paste
  • ground cumin to taste
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (or more if avocado is big)
  • dash of Shoyu
  • 1 medium size clove garlic
  • 1 spring onion
  • boiling water – approx. 1 cup
  • sprouts


  1. Cut carrot into large chunks
  2. place all ingredients, except the sprouts,  into power blender
  3. add just boiled, filtered water to cover the vegetables
  4. run power blender on high for 1 – 2 minutes, until smooth & soup is hot, but not boiling (boiling would destroy valuable enzymes  in the vegetables, you should still be able to put a finger into the soup and leave it there without burning yourself).
  5. pour soup into bowls & sprinkle with sprouts and maybe a bit of paprika
