2 medium sized avocados

1/2 tsp vanilla bean powder
1/4 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup agave (or honey)
1 tbsp lemon juice

METHOD:

Combine all ingredients in food processor or small blender, blend and eat!

Adzuki Bean Soup…flavours of Japan, on a cleanse.

As many of you know I’ve got a penchant for creation ~ that only STARTS in the kitchen. Following a strict diet can be difficult at first especially if you don’t know your way around spices, or the kitchen. Not to mention running into ingredients you’ve never heard of.

I’m trying to make wholesome, delicious recipes for you to enjoy without too much sufferation. (I KNOW that’s a word, the dictionary just has yet to adopt it).

This soup is filling, lovely and warming especially in the winter months, and especially if you’re feeling a little woozy on a cleanse.

New to Veganism? Try this bad girl out. It doesn’t break the bank and you can make a tonne of it in advance to freeze or pack into multiple meals for family/lunches etc.

Yours in health,

Sasha
