I love this green detox soup during all year, it helps me when I feel that I need an extra help with my digestive system, it really helps to balance it.
The base is made with broccoli, it works with the enzymes in your liver to turn toxins into something your body can eliminate easily, is rich in potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron. The avocado brings all the nourishing fats for your body making the soup silky and soft.
I think this soup wouldn’t be detoxifying without the lemon, it brings a fresh flavour to the soup, so good! the garlic and the ginger will help to boost your immune system as well as helping out the liver and it helps to bring a spicy flavour to the green soup.
In cold months I like to make this soup as in the recipe above is so heart warming, but in warmer months I like to use the same ingredients but instead, I like to blend all the raw ingredients. I found that when I have it raw the detoxifying benefits are higher, I do really feel them.
