Raw Celery Soup – with Avocado

I’m a huge fan of raw blended soups, maybe it’s because of my Spanish heritage and growing up on gazpacho, or maybe it’s because raw blended soups are so easy to make and digest.

Because of celery’s naturally salty flavor, it makes a great base for raw blended soups and avocado adds the creaminess. I hope you enjoy this raw celery soup recipe!

Raw Celery Soup – with Avocado

2 cups chopped celery
1 and ½ cups filtered water
½ large Hass avocado
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1-2 small garlic cloves (my husband likes more garlic, I like less)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper or to taste

Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender, except the dill and chives, and blend on high until you reach a creamy consistency. Add the fresh dill and chives and pulse until the herbs are chopped into tiny pieces, but still visible. Makes about 2 cups total, serves 1 person.

Tips

  • Garnish with chopped vegetables and a sprig of fresh dill. You can use whatever vegetables you like, but I ended up using diced orange bell pepper and celery.
  • You will need to blend for quite awhile with a powerful blender like the Vitamix to get the desired creamy consistency; it will also gently warm the soup and bring it to room temperature.
  • If you don’t have a powerful blender you can actually peel the celery’s outer layer to remove some of the fibrous strands with a simple vegetable peeler.
  • I have seen raw celery soup recipes made with cashews instead of avocado (about a ¼ of a cup of raw cashews). I prefer avocado, because it’s lighter, but feel free to experiment.
  • Since I had dill and chives on hand for the soup, I ended up making some raw dehydrated zucchini chips that might make a good addition to serve with the raw celery soup.
