Simple Frozen Pea Soup

The school year has started! I love the beginning of the semester. The campus is so alive, so full of energy. Everyone is just a little more friendly, smiles are just a little more common, and the weather is just a little bit brighter (well, mostly).

We have classes, events, meet ups, work, clubs, new friends to meet, old friends to see. We’re busy. Sometimes during these times it can be hard to fit in making a healthy meal. However, I know in order to survive (and maybe even thrive!)  this crazy time of year I need some good fuel to power through. With the hot weather lately (along with having my wisdom teeth removed-ouch!) Smoothies have been my go-to meal. But I don’t always want something sweet. So, I give you: frozen pea soup. It’s simple. It’s satisfying. It takes only a few minutes to whip up. It has only three ingredients. Best of all, it’s made of whole foods. Enjoy!

Frozen Pea Soup:

1 cup frozen peas

1/2 lime, juiced (or just pealed and added to blender)

1/2 avocado

1/2 cup water (or for a creamier soup I used 1/4 cup water, and 1/4 cup almond milk)

  Directions: First add water (and almond milk, if used) to blender. Add peas, avocado, and lime juice. Blend until smooth.  Add more liquid as needed to reach desired texture. Enjoy!

Can top with whole peas, flax seed, or anything you wish! If cold soup isn’t for you, you could possibly heat up blended soup, however I have not tried this and do not know how it would turn out. If you are really feeling adventurous, you can add a handful of spinach!

Let us know what you think! What are your favorite ways to stay healthy during the school year?
