Happy healthy 2014 - green recipe

Try to beat that!!!
Yeah you;  aspirine, dafalgan, spidifen,...

Instead of turning to pills to help me survive the day after new year,
I just blended up all of my veggie friends
and loaded up on all kinds of vitamins and minerals!!

My new favorite raw green soup!
And so easy you can make it in any state! 
Sober , still a bit drunk, completely hung over,..

Julie from Julie's Lifestyle go me totally dependent on her green garden blend!

Blend baby blend!

 So for 2 generous bowls

You'll need;

1 ½ cup purified water
1 orange, peeled and chopped
1 apple, cored and chopped
2 cups leafy greens, packed*1
½ cup fresh herbs (cilantro, parsley, basil…), packed
1 ½ tablespoon light miso
½ tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon garlic, crushed
½ green onion
6 drops of liquid stevia
pinch of cayenne
pinch of salt
pinch of black pepper
½ avocado, peeled and seeded*2

*1 I like a combination of red and green leaf lettuce, rocket and kale, but you can easily combine your own favourites like spinach, collard greens, chard, mustard greens, romaine lettuce…

*2 If you prefer a creamier texture, you can add an entire avocado.

what to do

Combine the water, orange, apple, miso, lemon juice, garlic, onion, stevia, cayenne, salt and black pepper, and blend until smooth.
Add the leafy greens and fresh herbs. Use the plunger to push the pieces down and blend until smooth.
Taste test. If you feel like the soup just needs that little extra, try to add another pinch of salt. If the soup is too bitter, you can add more stevia. If the soup is too sweet, add more greens. Don’t adjust too much; the creamy avocado will bring all the flavours together.
Add the avocado and blend briefly until smooth. If you blend the soup for too long, you will create air bubbles and those will affect the soup’s creamy texture.
Serve immediately with a sprinkle of fresh herbs on top, preferably those you used in the soup
