LAUREN'S SO GREEN SOUP. 14 Jun 2013

Sogreen

I love cold, summer soups.  I've been making this one for years and was planning to save the recipe for Lithe's book, but I think it's time to share it!  It's delicious, super-filling and keeps you energized post-Lithe. Whether I'm prepping for a photo-shoot, need energy, or just want to re-set my eating/cooking habits, I make this soup part of my everyday diet.  Make this on Sunday and it will last you until Wednesday.    

Ingredients:

  • bunch raw asparagus (trim ends a bit)
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 c fresh dill
  • 1 lemon squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 
  • 2-4 lemon balm leaves (calming, anti-anxiety)
  • 1/4 teaspoon spirulina (mood enhancer)
  • 1/4 teaspoon hemp powder (helps build muscle)
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic chlorella powder (energy enhancer)
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic chia seeds (balances blood sugar and protects joints) 

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender or Vitamix and blend until smooth.  Add a bit more water if it's too thick for your liking.  Don't have superfood powder?  Make it without them!

My husband is allergic to cashews. Think I can sub almonds instead?

I'm OBSESSED with Spirulina right now. I do Spirulina "shots" twice a day. Pinning this.

Toni, that's awesome! I'm pretty obsessed too : ) Jenn, sure I don't see why not. Let me know how it tastes!

This sounds so great Lauren! Thanks for including the parenthesized health benefits of those last five ingredients :)

Carbs and proteins are probably the best muscle diets to build lean muscles for men.
