Look! It’s a soup! It’s a smoothie! No…it’s a SOOTHIE!

We all know that green smoothies are a nutrient-dense, fiber-filled way to pack in the prana. But when it’s cold outside or I’ve got a sore throat, a cold smoothie just isn’t appealing.  That’s when I want something warm and soothing like Dr. John Douillard’s Green Tonic Soup (from his Colorado Cleanse recipe book.)

This bright green yumminess is super delicious and nutritious – and when you add a chunk of ginger, it soothes a sore throat an opens up the sinuses. That’s why I call it a “soothie.

I love this recipe so much I wanted to share it with you:

Ingredients:

1-2 cups filtered water for steaming
2 medium organic celery stalks, chopped
1 whole organic zucchini, chopped
1 cup organic strong beans, chopped
1/2 cup organic parsley

Directions:

1. Lightly steam veggies (except parsley) until bright green and tender

2. Blend all the veggies + parsley along with the water used for steaming in a powerful blender  (adjust amount of water to create the consistency you desire)

3. Add ginger root and salt to taste (I used a thumb sized ginger)

And voilà!!   A nutritious and delicious soothie.
