Raw Tomato Basil Soup

A client is cleansing right now and bouncing off the walls with energy. His eyes are gleaming and his handstands kickin' so I required his secret. One of his favorites right now: raw soup. He rattled off ideas for this raw tomato basil soup which takes a pinch to make and is the perfect solution if you’re on the go.

1 huge heirloom tomato

1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted

2 cloves garlic

1/4 onion

1 jalepeno (seeds optional for heat)

1/2 cup basil

salt to taste

1/4 cup filtered water

optional: cilantro leaves + pumpkin seeds for garnish

Place all ingredients in powerful blender and mix until creamy. If your blender is strong enough you can blend until it heats itself up. Otherwise, remove from blender and warm on stove or enjoy cold with cilantro or pumpkin seeds on top!
