Soupologie is crossing soups and smoothies with the launch of what it claims are UK’s first ‘raw soups’.
The products, which are available now in Ocado, come in a 250ml plastic bottle (rsp: £4.25) and are designed to be eaten cold and sipped straight from the bottle. The range includes five flavours: Beetroot & Mint; Watermelon & Chilli; Strawberry, Tarragon & Lucuma; Cucumber, Kale & Avocado; Spinach, Mango, Lime & Baobab.
Soupologie said the soups differed from smoothies as they were not based around a juice or liquid base and contained largely whole vegetables and fruit.
“They are savoury with a full-bodied, rounded depth of flavour that comes from the seasoning and herbs, in exactly the same way as a soup that’s meant to be eaten warm,” said the supplier. “The only difference is that these raw soups are meant to be eaten chilled and we’ve put them into a bottle for on-the-go ease.”
