Glowing Green Soup (GGSo) Recipe (Your First Recipe Assignment!)


Hope you had a great Memorial Day with friends and family! John and I are in Turkey right now, where we are enjoying a lot of veggie food, like arugula salad, hummus, veggies casseroles and more. We’re going to be based and working out of Europe for a while, and Turkey is one amazing place that is part of the journey. I made this recipe very recently, which is why it was top of my mind…

Whether you went off track–or didn’t–here is a really easy, healthy recipe I wanted to share with you that will be great to make this week. It’s the Glowing Green Soup (GGSo), and it’s the savory sister to our beloved GGS. 

I posted a Youtube video of making this this past winter, but I wanted to bring it up again now that summer is coming upon us, to show how versatile this recipe is.

Here is the full recipe: 

Glowing Green Soup (GGSo) 


Serves: 1-2

  • 1 cup unsweetened plain almond milk
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 2 cups tomatoes, rough chopped
  • ½ cup zucchini, chopped
  • 1 Tbs. purple onion
  • 2 Tbs. nutritional yeast
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt, or to taste
  • Avocado, for topping
  • Sprouts or microgreens, for topping
  • Cayenne pepper, for topping

Blend everything together, retaining some texture (do not blend as silky as the GGS, unless you really don’t like any chunks at al!). Top with the avocado and sprouts, and enjoy!

Recipe Notes 

Because it’s getting warm, there is no need to warm the almond milk in the recipe. After blending, the soup will be around room temp, and very refreshing and easy to digest- not to mention naturally slimming, and full of fiber and beauty ingredients.

This is also our very first Beauty Detox Recipe Mixup “assignment”!!! 

Now for the Fun Part!

I want you to take this recipe and put your own twist on it. Don’t forget to blog about it on your Beauty Detox blog (for free training support click HERE)

If you post on social please use the hashtag #beautydetoxrecipe, and link back to the original recipe here, as always when doing a recipe variation :).

I can’t wait to see your ideas! Here are some possible ideas:

  • Swap in different veggies: different greens, veggies like red pepper, carrots, etc.
  • Try different spices: paprika, chili powder, etc. 
  • Add garlic or more pungent ingredients 
  • Lemon, lime or a little bit more sour flavors

Be creative, and show us your pics and your share your ideas with the community!

Have a great day and happy GGSo-ing :).

    I’ve noticed you travel with the Vita Mix blender. I currently living in Europe and would like to know (if you use one) what kind of transformer and wattage you use for the Vita Mix blender. I would love to continue using my Vita Mix but I haven’t heard very reassuring stories with using transformers and appliances here and would rather not have to spend so much on an European blender.

    I added red capsicum, rocket leaves, chilli flakes and a can of unsweetened chickpeas to my GGSo today. It’s super filling and very satisfying.
