Winter’s over, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up soup. This healthy soup recipe is raw, which means you can enjoy it during warmer weather. It also means that the nutrients in its ingredients are fully intact, so you’re getting the full benefit of all those greens.

Raw goddess soup

1 large avocado
1 red pepper
2 cups salad greens
Handful of kale
1-2 scallions
1 teaspoon dulse (a seaweed)
Sea salt of Bragg’s apple cider to taste
1 clove garlic, crushed
Pinch of cayenne
Fresh herbs like dill, thyme, and basil to taste
Purified water

Blend all ingredients. Use purified water to thin it out. You don’t have to follow this recipe exactly – which veggies to you love? You can also use olive oil or flax oil in place of the avocado.
