Refreshing Asparagus Soup
An asparagus lover's dream!! This soup is light on the stomach, but heavy on the flavour. Filled with nutrients and protein, Clean Lean Protein Just Natural that is. When you're sick of pumpkin soup in the winter and want something a bit more fun and nutritious, give this a go! Definitely an immune booster and super high in Vitamin B1!
