The Avocado Queen Welcomes You

This blog is mostly about raw vegetarian/vegan recipes, many of which incorporate avocados. Since I became a raw/live food vegan several years ago, avocados became an important part of my diet. I'd even say that they are my favorite food, and as it turns out, they are also considered one of the world's healthiest foods. While my primary purpose here is to showcase avocados and how awesome they are, I will also share some recipes that are just plain good raw/live food as well as vegan food.

Most recipes are accompanied by a meditation or reflection - posting as "food for thought."

Wishing you peace, love, joy, and blessings wherever you are in your journey towards health...

Put This In Your Vitamix And Blend It: Cool Pea Soup

Change and growth take place when a we are willing to risk ourselves -- to delve into a new realm of being, such as authenticity, vulnerability, compassion, or boldness.  To dare to experiment with our own lives is what brings true growth and transformation!  If you or someone you love is taking a stand for health and well-being, please enjoy this recipe!

Put This In Your Vitamix And Blend It: Cool Pea Soup


  • 1 stalk of celery - chopped into smaller pieces - about 1/2 an inch 
  • 2 cups of fresh, raw English peas (I buy them in a bag in the fresh produce section at Trader Joe's)
  • 1 ripe Hass avocado - cut into cubes
  • 3-4 inches of a cucumber - chopped into smaller pieces
  • 1 TB miso (vegan and gluten-free, if desired)
  • 1 tsp Sriracha sauce (or something else spicy, e.g. cayenne)
  • 2 TB hemp seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups of water or almond milk


I have a Vita-Mix 5200 with the variable control dial.  And I used it to create this recipe.

If fresh peas are unavailable, you can experiment with frozen or canned, but the results are unknown.


Put these things into the Vitamix and blend on HIGH until smooth:

  • 1/2 of the avocado
  • about 3/4 of the celery stalk
  • 1/2 of the cucumber
  • 1 cup of the peas
  • miso
  • Sriacha
  • hemp seeds
  • water/almond milk


Add these things to the pure in the Vitamix and blend on variable setting 1-2, essentially pulse chopping them into the soup:

  • the remaining half of the avocado
  • the remaining celery (about 1/4 of the stalk)
  • the remaining half of the cucumber
  • 1 cup of peas
  • any additional liquid to thin, if desired

(If you do not have a Vitamix with a variable control dial, you can complete STEP 2 with handy knife work or by using the pulse setting in a food processor.)


Refrigerate for a couple of hours and serve chilled.
