Soup

3 cups fresh carrot juice 3/4 cup butternut squash, cubed 1/4 cup sliced leeks 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 1 teaspoon fresh thyme 3/4 teaspoon sea salt pinch of pepper 3/4 medium-sized avocado   Place all ingredients except avocado into a Vita-Mix and process until smooth. If you like a warm soup, blend for two minutes. Add avocado and blend again until smooth.   Pour into soup bowls and serve with pine nut cream.   Soup will keep for 3-4 days in refrigerator. Pine nut cream will last about a week in  the refrigerator.   Quick & Easy Tip: You can use store bought organic carrot juice and pre-cut butternut squash if you’re in a pinch for time.   Cost Cutter: You can substitute cashews for the pine nuts.   Nutrition Note: Carrot juice is high in beta-carotene, a phytonutrient which our body converts into vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant responsible for reducing free radical damage, maintaining eye health as well as liver function and bone formation.   Recipe provided by Raw Juditahttp://rawjudita.virb.com/ For more raw food recipes, Click Here   Judita is a Certified Holistic Health Counselor trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and a Raw Food Chef and Nutrition Educator from the Living Light Culinary Institute.
