Raw Vegan Recipes: Apple Avocado Soup

Raw Vegan Apple Avocado Soup
Some of the biggest complaints I hear about being vegan are that “it is too expensive” or that “there are only so many different vegetables you can eat without getting bored.” I wish I could take the people with this mindset grocery shopping for a week and cook them three meals a day to prove both of these statements false. Most days that I go to the farmers market I come home with a loot of fruit and veggies that will last me for days and cost me less than $10. And my favorite part is getting creative with them so my meals don’t get boring!

Recently I was given an abundance of apples from a woman with a tree in her backyard. To use them up I baked them into apple crisp, juiced them to make cider, and froze the juice in some popsicles molds. I am still too intimidated to attempt making a homemade pie from scratch, so I decided to make a raw soup using my last apple.

This soup uses apple and avocado as its main ingredients and herbs and spices to taste. I don’t think the ingredients would cost any more than $5 to make this. Plus, you only need to use half of an avocado for one serving so you could save and use the other half for something else!

Because this soup is raw, it maintains all of the nutrients the produce has to offer. It is packed with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins A, C, and E, and contains the anti inflammatory and detoxification powers of cilantro.
