Raw Alkaline Cleanse Soup – Takes 5 Minutes & It’s DELICIOUS!
This is my cornerstone alkaline cleanse soup – it’s a highly alkaline, energizing soup and is a big favourite while on the Alkaline Cleanse or just when I need a hit of nutrients and am short on time (sound familiar?).
It takes five minutes to make, is raw, alkaline, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant-rich, nutrient dense and FILLING. You can also make 2x what you need and save a serve for later – it keeps in an airtight container in the fridge for 48 hours.
The avocado and the spoon of healthy oils give you the fats to keep your energy high for hours, the fibre from the vegetables keeps you full and the cleansing properties of the cucumber, the antioxidants from the pepper (capsicum/bell pepper) delivers a hit for your immune system.
It’s an awesomely alkaline soup and it’s a firm fixture for me – a foundational recipe – whenever I do an alkaline cleanse. This is basically the original alkaline cleanse soup recipe – the staple.
Raw Alkaline Cleanse Soup Recipe
1 spring onion
1/2 red or green pepper
2 handfuls of spinach
1/2 clove of garlic
1 dessert spoon of healthy fat (flax, avocado oil, coconut oil – your choice)
Bragg Liquid Aminos to taste
100ml of light vegetable Bouillon/stock (yeast free)
1cm of root ginger, grated (or 1tsp of powdered, pref. organic)
Juice of 1 lemon or lime
Optional: coriander, parsley, cumin.
Blend the avocado and stock to form a light paste, then add the other ingredients and blend.
Simple as that! If there is a particular ingredient you like, you can certainly throw it in here, feel free to swap, add, change, replace – just keep the core of the avocado, cucumber, spinach and stock.
This soup can also be served warmed – it’s still raw. As long as it’s not so hot you can’t put your finger in and leave it there – that is still considered raw. My favourite way to make it ‘warmed’ is to use boiled stock/bouillon. OR if you have a Vitamix, you can follow their protocol for gently warming within the blender.
It’s such an awesome delicious soup – I hope you love it!
