B is a huge fan of Blothouse farms smoothies so I was happy to work with them on a campaign, I was given a bunch of coupons to try them out. There were so many flavors to chose from, 30+ flavors to be exact, my grocery store didn’t have them all otherwise I would have been picking and choosing for hours!
Being the coffee lover I am I gravitated to the Salted Caramel Coffee and the boys were drawn to fruit juices. We had gotten a huge thing of the carrot juice because they didn’t have any small ones and we wanted to try it. Over the last week we’ve been drinking the juice but we’ve also been using it in recipes, we’ve been making yummy smoothies with fruit and vegetables we’ve had on hand and I also decided to try my hand at Creamy Carrot Soup. Traditional Carrot Soup uses carrots but this one uses Bolthouse Farm 100% Carrot Juice and is amazing!
While the vegetables are simmering in a small pot on medium to high heat melt and brown 1 stick of butter. Once it’s melted and browned add 1/2 cup of flour and mix
Then add 8oz of Bolthouse farms 100% carrot juice to the butter/flour mixture
Pour the mixture into vegetable base, mix and then add in 1 cup of whipping cream.
Season with 1 teaspoon of Garlic salt and 1 teaspoon of ground pepper.
Let simmer for another 20-30 minutes or until all the vegetable are soft. Serve and enjoy!
This soup is delicious and all you would need is a small bottle of 100% Bolthouse Farms Carrot juice!
