Carrot & Apple Soup - a perfect soup for the holiday or year-round!

When I first featured this dish in a past C1 Challenge, there were a few raised eye brows!

The recipe was initially met with some hesitation due to the ingredients (apples and carrots!!), but after participants tried the concoction, they were blown away!

Roasted carrots are the best!

When I made this recipe, I used a Granny Smith Apple.

You can definitely experiment with your flavors, so if you want to use a Honeycrisp for extra sweetness, then by all means try it!

Apples are full of fiber and a perfect ingredient for soups, salads and dessert!

Where cumin is listed, feel free to substitute with your own favorite spice such as cinnamon, ginger or something entirely different!

Add warm spices to your dishes to deepen the flavors!


The sky really is the limit with this recipe – make it your own with spices and different types of apples!

If you mix and match your apples and spices, let me know how it turns out!

  1. what are the calories on the carrot apple soup? I have made it, love it, but want to record it in my fitbit. Thanks!

    • Hi Jeri, since the 17 Day Diet isn’t really about counting calories, I don’t keep track of caloric count in the recipes. However, this recipe should be fairly low cal based on the ingredients. Does FitBit allow you to manually input the ingredients to input out a number for you?

  2. I am going to try this diet again, bought the book a few years back when it first came out. Didn’t succeed. Problem is the water thing, I am limited because of Congestive Heart Failure, will this still work without drinking so much?
