* I know there are a lot of "optional" ingredients listed above but they will not change the flavor of the smoothie so if you don't have them go ahead and make this anyway. I'm a little obsessed with adding "extras" to my smoothies.
I made this soup last night because I wanted to use up some of the produce that was in my fridge before it spoiled. I have leftovers for today which is perfect for my GREEN FOOD DAY! Oh and just so you know, this is a RAW soup recipe. Which really just means that I didn't cook it, I made it in my blender. (Man I love raw food!) If you want a warmer soup you can definitely warm this on the stove until it's just "finger warm" - not hot, that way it's still technically raw (not heated above 108-115 degrees).
Clean Green Soup
1 1/2 cups water
2 (really) large handfuls Romaine/Spinach
1 small handful Parsley
1 large head Broccoli
3 Basil leaves
2 tomatoes, chopped
juice of half a lemon plus rind
3-4 Radishes, diced
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
Place all the ingredients into a high speed blender and process until smooth. For a smoother soup consistency add a half or whole avocado. I would have done that except that I never have avocado's lying around - I eat them immediately!
Pour into a bowl, grab a spoon and enjoy! If you want it warmer add a pinch more cayenne or see my note above.

(Oh, and it seems that I have been on a roll with "S" titles in the last 4 posts. See here , here , here and here . How weird. Anyway, this post broke that strange little kick I was on... thankfully.)
Happy GREEN FOOD DAY... AKA Family Day here in Ontario!
