This is one of the best chilled soups I've ever tasted, and it's really healthy too.
Summer is a great time to detox, and this delightful chilled cucumber avocado soup is a delicious way to do it. The simple soup contains specific healthy ingredients that can help increase your body's alkalinity and help eliminate toxins that may clog your liver.
Personally, I sometimes leave out the cayenne and drink it for breakfast like a green smoothie.
If I want even more greens, I add a leaf of kale or spinach!
I found this recipe on Dr. Axe's website. Dr. Axe says that his Secret Cucumber Detox Soup, as he calls it, is loaded with ingredients that facilitate detoxification and enrich the growth of healthy hair, skin, and nails.
In addition, Dr. Axe extols the benefits of cucumbers because he says they are highly alkaline and help balance the body's ph level while counteracting the negative effects of a highly acidic diet
that is often created by eating foods high in sugar, fried foods, refined carbohydrates, and flour etc.
Mild, cooling, and delicious, this vegan and gluten free soup is a welcome treat on hot summer's day!I make the recipe for myself in advance as a snack, pick me up, or breakfast smoothie.
If you would like to make it for 2-4 people, the recipe multiplies well
My notes: Although you can drink it immediately after whirling it in the high speed blender , it really tastes best when it's been chilled for a few hours. It also holds up great overnight in the refrigerator so you can make it in advance for guests! Yes, Chill It!
