My delicious green soup is a favourite in our household and also with many who have made my recipe I have received so many messages and photos about people loving this soup and how nourishing it feels to eat it. This alkalising soup is so delicious you will be making another batch in no time. Providing your body with a great source of energy, fibre and bursting with nutrients such as B vitamins, Vit C, folate, betacarotene, zinc, calcium, magnesium. Wonderful for gut health and liver. I even have a mug of this for breakfast some days!

2 celery stalks
200G baby spinach
bunch of kale leaves

Now its time to add the baby broccoli, kale and ginger, simmer for 4-5 min, then add baby spinach and juice of 1 lemon, you may need to ada a little more water here add small amount at a time, heat and simmer for 2-3min.
