Detoxing is a terrific way to rid your body of all those nasty things that sneak into your food and affect your digestive system. But buying those fad, overpriced detox kits isn’t the way to do it. Instead, eating fresh, whole foods will help you feel great, both on the inside and outside. That’s why I highly recommend my Secret Cucumber Detox Soup recipe.
This Secret Cucumber Detox Soup is one of my favorite recipes when I want to hit the “reset” button on my diet. It’s packed with cucumber, renowned for cleansing the liver, our body’s main detoxing organ. This detox soup also includes avocado, which adds healthy fats and a creamy texture. If you’ve had a particularly indulgent weekend, try this Secret Cucumber Detox Soup.
Start by adding the cucumber, onion, olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar and water into a Vitamix or high-powered blender. Puree on high until the mix is smooth. Then add in the chili powder, salt and remaining ingredients and blend together.
Garnish the Secret Cucumber Detox Soup with cuke slices on top and smoked paprika and serve. This refreshing soup makes a healthy meal. It’s also ready in minutes, and because it’s served cool, this cucumber soup is portable, excellent for taking to work. You won’t believe how good a detox can taste!
