Don't allow a mid-afternoon slump! Eat a high energy meal packed in nutrition and deliciousness with this creamy fennel gazpacho recipe!
Get prepared to enjoy a fresh, raw gazpacho that takes only minutes to make in a blender and is perfect for summer time. A perfect vegan dish, the avocado makes it super creamy, almost like there was cream in it. Using hemps seeds or Sunwarrior natural protein increases the creaminess as well as the protein. The arugula offers chlorophyll to oxygenate the cells, and the fennel gives it a slightly sweet, anise-like flavor while aiding digestion. Every ingredient is a quality micro and macronutrient that has a beneficial effect on the body and provides you with abundant energy. This is also a high energy soup because it takes minimal energy within the body to digest it.
Gracious Living Creamy Fennel Gazpacho
- 1/3 cup hemp seeds (I like organic, non-GMO hemp seeds from Navitas Naturals)
- 1/2 cup arugula

- 1 stalk fennel, cut into small chunks so it can blend easily
- 1 fresh lemon, juiced
- 3 cups water
- 1/3 cup chopped onion
