Recently, I tried an alkalizing soup, Creamy Cucumber Avocado. The ingredients, especially cilantro, are good for detoxing metals from the body. The second blended soup below is Tortilla Soup, adapted from Blendtec's website.
Creamy Cucumber Avocado Soup
2 organic cucumbers
2 ripe avocados (without the pit)
1 jalapeno pepper (remove seeds)
1 green onion
1/2 lime (without rind)
2-4 drops of YL Lime essential oil
1 bunch of cilantro with stems
1/2 tsp sea salt (or to taste)
Garnish with chopped cilantro and pine nuts
Blend on high speed until smooth. Can be served cold or warm (blend longer to heat).
2 Roma tomatoes, quartered
1/2 large carrot
1/2 red pepper
2 tbsp onion
1/2 cup shredded pepper jack or cheddar cheese (optional)
small bunch of fresh cilantro
1 tsp 21 seasoning salute (Trader Joe)
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp garlic powder or 1 clove fresh garlic
2 cups water
1/2 cup tortilla chips
Blend all ingredients, except tortilla chips, until smooth and warm. You can add the tortilla chips and optional ingredients and pulse 2-3 times to chop slightly or just leave as pieces.
Optional: 1/2 cup black beans, cooked chicken pieces, corn kernels
