This soup is summery and fresh, perfect both for people who adhere to the raw food diet and for people who just want an avocado soup that tastes great to cool them off and nourish them on a summer’s day. The recipe was given to me by my beloved Joy Lynn. I tweaked it just a little because I don’t have a blender X)
Ingredients for Raw Food Diet Avocado Soup
1 small cucumber
1 head of celery
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt, olive oil and provençal herbs to taste (if you don’t have provençal herbs, a mix of oregano and thyme will do well)
A bit of briefly soaked raw wakame seaweed
More avocado and carrot to garnish
How to make Raw Food Diet Avocado Soup
Joy’s recipe was simple: blend all of the ingredients together in a blender and then garnish with extra cubes of avocado and grated carrot.
I don’t have a blender so what I did was put the celery and cucumber through my juice machine and then with a minipime blend the avocado and other things into that.
Joy says, by the way, that the salt and oil are optional because the avocado already makes it creamy and the celery already makes it salty. This is a slightly healthier version for extra points. 🙂
Raw food diet
If you just came here for an avocado soup recipe, then let me take a moment to tell you what the raw food diet is about.
Also known as the living foods diet, the raw food diet is based around foods that are edible raw. Raw foods have a higher content of enzymes and nutrients, and don’t have the toxins created by application of heat. The great thing is you can feel it! Notice how much healthier and more energetic you feel after eating a raw avocado soup compared to a heavier meal.
On this site you can find lots more raw and semi-raw recipes, as well as other recipes made with optimum health in mind.
