Thai Coconut Bliss Soup

Thai Coconut Bliss Soup
Recipe from The Raw Food Detox Diet by Natalia Rose
makes 2-4 servings

It is one of Natalia’s favorite soups and now I know why. It is beyond divine!! Such creamy deliciousness! I love all things coconut so was excited by a soup that used 3 young coconuts! It was so creamy and full of flavor. I know that anyone would love this soup, as long as they don’t mind coconuts of course! Plus I love that you have coconut water left over after the recipe. I love love love coconut water, it is totally magical. And of course, as with most raw soups this is super easy to make (once the coconuts are open!).
