Smoothie and soup recipes

March 7, 2010

Today is the last day of proper fasting. After this Lasse and I will have had four full days of only taking in liquid foods. We decided to stop here, simply because we’re starting to miss solid food, and also Mondays are days when I shoudl be pretty focused so I’d rather have some fruit to chew on.

I have been quite stressed out from school and other stuff lately, which is why there hasn’t been much time to update hildablue. Also not a very good time to be fasting on. The best time to detox would be during holidays, in the summer, when one can relax and focus on oneself. This was not how we did it, though, but it worked well nonetheless.

During our fasting, we have eaten puréed soups and smoothies. For the “soups”, we boiled some veggies, then strained away the water/stock. Then we mixed the veggies, adding hot water until the blend was very smooth. And the stock we drank along the day, inbetween “meals”.

Here are some recipes that I enjoyed very much:

Banana, carrot, apple smoothie

  • 1 apple, 1 banana, 1 carrot
  • Cut the fruits into small pieces.
  • Add to food processor with plenty of water, and run until smooth.

Spinach and carrot smoothie

  • About 100 g spinach (I used canned but I’m sure fresh is a lot better)
  • 1 raw carrot
  • 1/2 stem of celery
  • capers
  • black pepper

Add all the ingredients to a food processor with plenty of water, and run until smooth.

Can be eaten hot or cold. (just run it in the micro/boil it for a while after having processed it)

Carrot and sweet potato soup

  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 sweet potato
  • 1/2 stem of celery
  • ginger
  • mixed herbs (thyme, basil, oregano are good)
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • black pepper
  • cayenne pepper
  • (lemon juice)

Boil all the ingredients and spices until the vegetables are soft. Strain the stock out and use as drinks between meals. Mix the vegetables, adding a bit of (hot) water, and possibly a hint of lemon juice, so that the soup isn’t too solid.

If you like ginger, you can use quite a lot of it in this recipe.
