Avocado Carrot Soup

By Elizabeth Fournier


3 cups fresh carrot juice

1 large avocado

handful of alfalfa sprouts cut into thirds

small sprig of parsley or cilantro leaves


Using a juicer, add enough carrots to make 3 cups, and make carrot juice.

Next, cut avocado in half. Place the carrot juice and avocado in a blender, and blend until smooth. Put sprouts and parsley on top of the soup. Serve chilled.
