Emerald City Soup (AIP-friendly)

Emerald Soup

You know you need to eat your greens to get to the Emerald City. This soup gets you onto the yellow brick expressway… and it’s Autoimmune Protocol friendly!

Yield: 3 bowls full

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, including stems
  • 2 bunches spinach (or ½ of a 1lb bin of prewashed baby spinach)
  • 1 ½ cups chopped honeydew or watermelon
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • ½ cup coconut aminos

Whirl all ingredients in a food processor.

Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Feel great!

    1. It’s so good… & so much less time consuming to make than salad!

      I have been using watermelon, but after learning (this afternoon) that fructose contributes more to inflammation than glucose, & that watermelon is high in fructose, but other melons are not, I’m going to switch to honeydew melon. It works better with the green theme anyway!

      The fructose/glucose information came from The Paleo Mom blog:
