Raw Avocado And Corn Soup

As part of our raw menu this week, we created a simple 'Avocado And Corn Soup' recipe that is served cold. For the broth, we boiled some water with vegetables (including the corn cob for flavor). Once ready, we discarded the cooked vegetables and allowed the broth to cool down completely before adding our raw sweet corn and avocado with more raw vegetables! When you boil vegetables, the nutrition is transferred to the water so we were able to get additional health benefits from the broth. See recipe below and check out our previous Avocado Soup recipe. Enjoy!
