This is a traditional Spanish soup, much like gazpacho. I´ve even heard it called white gazpacho before. Making it fully raw is so easy it´s incredible.

Recipe Directions

I LOVE LOVE LOVE grapes in this. Green or Red, but i´m partial to green. Enjoy!!!

Hmm..I don´t know because the almonds really add the necessary well, almondy flavor. I would say that the best substitute would probably be cashews because of the creaminess. I totally forgot about the pasteurization thing now. Have you tried sourcing European almonds?

since almonds aren't raw anymore here in north america, do you know of any other nut that would make a good substitute?

I just made this last night, but with 1 cup grapes and 1/2 cucumber as well. Also too much garlic, but delicious!
