Raw Green Soup with Avocado

Greens alkalize the body and detox, always a good thing.  This magical, light raw soup can be eaten room temp, but I like it best cold from the frig.  It’s fun to garnish with nasturtiums or purple broccoli….  Do you need the garlic and lemon?  Well, they help detox, and they also make the soup taste bright.  Why a pear?  It lends a little sweetness without much sugar, a lot of fiber. 

2 C water

4 cloves garlic, pressed

3-4 C greens of your choice (lettuce, chard, kale)

1-2 tsp Himalayan or Celtic sea salt

1-2 C fresh herbs (parsley, basil, oregano,

1 avocado, peeled and pitted

     thyme, cilantro)

1 pear, cored

1 lemon or lime, peeled

1 C cucumber (zucchini works too)

 

You do need a super-duper blender like a Vitamix (Good news!  We were able to get another shipment of Vitamix 7500s, and our price is still the best that can be found anywhere.  If you don’t have one of these machines, you owe it to yourself!)  Directions to make this soup?  Blend everything for about a minute.  Enjoy!
