Green Soup

A blend of greens, asparagus, avocado, lime, and jalapeno, this soup is anti-inflammatory and cleansing. The leafy greens pack a nutrient-dense and mineral-rich punch; the avocado is smoothing and is rich in luteins and folate, both great for heart health. The asparagus detoxifies our system, and with the mild heat from the jalapeno and the brightness from the lime, these ingredients combine to make a nutritious, vibrant, and immunity-building soup full of raw energy to keep you going. Great after a long weekend or when your digestion just needs a break. Serve frothy right from the blender, or chilled just out of the refrigerator. Eat [this] to Feel Good.

  1. Just made it to go with fresh, wild salmon for tonight’s dinner. So fresh and bright tasting! Great, quick, easy, healthy recipe…oh and I had cilantro on hand so I used in place of parsley…worked great!

    1. Glad it worked out for you! Cilantro would definitely be a fresh addition…if only my husband liked cilantro.. : )
