Raw Butternut Squash Soup

Time for some delicious raw soup! Our founder, Shauna Martin, was determined to re-create the wonderful flavors of her autumn butternut squash with spinach in the form a raw soup. If you’ve been using a Vitamix, you should now be deeply in love. It’s a fantastic tool for making soups. If you don’t have one, use a high-speed blender. With the weather getting colder, you may want a little something warm in your tummy, you may heat the soup a bit on the stove without cooking away all the nutrients. The raw food temperature limit is 115 degrees. Enjoy!
