Cold Vegetable Soup

"This for all you veggie lovers! It's a creamy cold soup that can substitute as a tasty, unusual smoothie for those on a low-carb or low-fruit diet. It's also yeast-free, wheat-free, and dairy-free."

Ready In:




  • Put all ingredients in a blender. Begin briefly on ice crusher mode to break up the strawberry and peas--I wouldn't go beyond 30-45 seconds.
  • After frozen items are broken up, add the spices. Feel free to experiment with whatever flavors strike your fancy.
  • Switch to pulse mode, and then alternate between pulse and blend until the drink is thick enough to suit.
  • When done, pour soup into a bowl and garnish with flax seeds(they can be sprinkled on top, or mixed in thoroughly for an added crunch).
  • The ingredient amounts are approximations, so feel free to add a little more of this or a little less of that if it seems necessary.
  • If you want a more substantial soup, want increase fiber intake, or accidently added too much liquid, try adding a tablespoon or two of ground flax seeds during the pulse & blend stage.

    Unfortunately this did not turn out well for us. It wasn't very palatable despite all the tasty ingredients. I couldn't help but think that something was missing; though I am not really quite sure what to suggest. On the bright side, the flax seeds were a nice touch! Made for PAC Spring 2010 :)


Hi there! I'm a writer by soul, and a cheerful, in-depth experimenter with pretty much everything else. I am also a happy newlywed. My husband and I first started informal pre-dating stuff while cooking odd ingredients into tasty dishes. I've done some form of cooking ever since I was six, with a particular fondness for baking. A few years ago I was diagnosed with various allergies and intolerances, including wheat, apples, bananas, pears, yeast and most things that are fermented. It radically changed my cooking style and thankfully opened up a whole new world of cuisine to try! However, I have plenty of people who still enjoy the treats I used to make (and eat), so I have the best of both worlds; playing around with high-calorie dishes without having to eat them!
