Raw Soup made with Tomato, Avocado, Bellpepper, Apple and Cucumber

Raw Soup made with Tomato, Avocado, Bell Pepper, Apple and Cucumber

I got this recipe from the Raw Glow blog. (http://rawglow.com/blog/2010/05/03/cecilias-everyday-raw-food-blended-soup-recipe/)   It was my first raw soup and was pretty good.  Actually it was a lot better than I expected.  It was very creamy and a little spicy from the garlic and cayenne. 

I really had no plans to ever go the raw soup route.  I have never tried gazpacho because cold soup just sounds gross!  However, I read in one of the books that raw food doesn’t have to be cold, just not overheated.   I decided to warm the soup by running the Vita Mix for a little bit.  It got it up to 110 degrees.  (I was shooting for 105 but ran it a little too long…oops!)   This was definitely a very quick and easy meal!
