Broccoli and Basil Soup

Broccoli and Basil Soup
Great as starters and makes a delicious winter warmer on those cool nights!


  1. Finely chop garlic and onions. Remove stalks from broccoli and chop the florets.
  2. In a large pot, heat the coconut oil and saute the garlic and onions until soft and fragrant.
  3. Add the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and add the broccoli and spinach leaves. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes only so you don’t overcook the veggies.
  4. Remove from the heat. Add the ginger, lime juice and basil leaves. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Transfer to a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  6. Pour into individual serving bowls and garnish with fresh basil leaves. Serve with your favourite sourdough or crackers.

Extra Notes

Also makes a complete and satisfying meal when served with noodles or pasta!

Have used them about 3 months, feeling better!

The Happy Hormones totally stopped my night sweats and hot flushes during the day also, I have never experienced a product working so well. It took a couple of weeks so hang in there.

Happy Hormone customer

I have been using HH for about 14mths now and couldn't imagine not taking it daily. I also take HH with Happy Greens and have had great success with this product also. Nothing better than taking a natural product and knowing it works. Thank you

To capsule or powder, that is the question.

So many ladies ask that question on the facebook page and my advice is Powder for economy Capsules for travel. You cant go wrong with either. Love this product, when I am asked about it by friends who are going through menopause I say the same thing, I can deal with everything except lack of sleep and Happy Hormones has given me back my sleep. Which of course gives you back your life. Thank you.


This is the best way to do business. The product is "Outstanding"
