Many "detox" recipes can be bland — but not this one! It's rich and creamy, all thanks to coconut milk with warm undertones from nutmeg. This nourishing broccoli soup is a great cleansing recipe. With only two ingredients plus optional toppings, this soup is done in under 30 minutes. If you like, add some sliced avocados, crushed macadamias, and last but not least some chopped parsley (or maybe even some grains!) to the soup to make a full meal from it.
