DETOX BROCCOLI COCONUT SOUP

Detox broccoli coconut soup

Don’t you just love coconut milk? So creamy. So tasty.

I’m having a real phase at the moment… Coconut milk with cinnamon, cardamom & sweet rice for a warming, ayurvedic dessert. Coconut milk turmeric latte - simply exquisite! Coconut milk with root vegetables & red lentils for a nourishing curry. And the obvious: coconut carrot ginger soup.

It’s late February and I’m desperately ready for spring, so in the meantime I’m inviting some tropical flavours into my body & soul through food.

We tend to think that DETOX is all about celery sticks, salads and juices. But if you’re applying the ancient wisdom of AYURVEDA, you may want to save the green smoothie cleanse for the heat of the summer and go with the seasons instead. Make it easy for your body with warming, super nourishing meals.

What we eat is important.
But what we can DIGEST is even more important.

This DETOX BROCCOLI COCONUT SOUP packs in the vital green nutrients from broccoli, and has the added kick from spicy ginger to fire up your metabolism. Coconut milk adds deep flavour and makes the texture super rich and creamy.

Give it a go,
you won’t be disappointed!
