And starting this week, the Juice Bar is rolling out their new soup menu full of fresh-made soups to warm the body with cold weather right around the corner. There’s something here for everyone!
*Tomato Basil: This dairy-free, made from scratch tomato soup is simple and warming, with notes of fresh basil, garlic and Roma tomatoes. Coconut milk offers a creaminess that makes it similar to a tomato bisque.
*Black Bean: Dairy-free, with a base of homemade vegetable broth that gives life to a simple, black bean soup. This flavorful and filling concoction has hints of fresh jalapeño and cilantro—and is great with a little fresh jalapeño juice added for someone looking for soup with an extra kick!
*Garden Vegetable: A classic, slow-cooked soup made with Juice Bar’s own homemade vegetable broth. This dairy-free soup is jam packed with veggies that are perfectly cooked to a point of softness while still maintaining a fresh veggie taste. Every bite is full of several root vegetables, making this is one of the most grounding and nutritious soups Juice Bar serves!
*Butternut Squash: The perfect soup for autumn, with a thick, creamy texture and rich flavor. Sweet and spicy tones from the squash, cinnamon, coconut milk and cayenne pepper make the flavors in this soup dance on the tongue, and the addition of fresh parsley right at the end gives it just a touch of bright and uplifting tones. Pairs awesome with the kale and quinoa salad!
*Red lentil: This dairy-free, plant-based soup tastes just like a vegetarian version of a chicken and rice soup! This soup is water based and made with our homemade veggie broth and nutritious lentils. By far one of our most popular soups, tastes like a “homemade grandma soup,” but is still part of a healthy lifestyle.
