We made this a vegan recipe but if you would like to use organic chicken or beef broth or bone broth as the base instead of the vegetable stock that is perfectly fine.  You could also replace the lemon juice with lime juice if you wish.

This is best with fresh squeezed lemon or limes as they have a richer array of anti-oxidants than the concentrated juices you will find in the store.  Three tablespoons of the juice is typically one lemon or lime so it shouldn’t take you too long to get enough juice.

Dr Jockers Comments

This lemon detox soup tastes great and is full of life giving nutrients that help support the drainage and detox pathways of the body.  This is vegan, low-carb and keto and uses clean ingredients that enhance our health and happiness!!

Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C, bioflavonoids and electrolytes which help to improve circulation, lymphatic movement, liver and kidney function.  The avocados provide healthy fats and micronutrients that improve the absorption of fat soluble nutrients and help you feel satiated after consuming this.

The various herbs we used in the recipe enhance the immune system, support healthy digestion and microbiome balance and strengthen the liver, kidneys and lymphatic circulation.  This is a fantastic cleansing recipe that I recommend for many of my clients and especially those who are following my Cancer Cleanse program.  Try this out and let us know how you liked it in the comments box below!

  1. Absolutely delicious hot or cold!! Excellent for any time, not just detox or post fast. LOVE! Thank you for sharing 😋

  2. I love this soup hot or cold. I substituted cayenne for cumin because I don’t like the taste of cumin.

  3. Finally got around to making this. I used beef bone broth and some of the herbs fresh from my garden. Served hot. Absolutely delicious and so beneficial! I will definitely make this again.

  4. I have a question… I avoid avocados and bananas due to the latex in them causesing great stiffness for me. Venn you suggest something asan alternate for the avacado. Cucumber might work with coconut cream. Thoughts?

    1. If you cannot do avocado, you can replace that with coconut milk so you still get the healthy fats. I would use the canned, full fat coconut milk. 1 can should suffice.

  5. I use: 1 small cucumber, 1 avocado, lemon juice, blueberries, kefir and spirulina & chlorella powder. This makes a good breakfast smoothie.(ground linseed and almonds make a good topping)

  6. This detox soup recipe looks great! Is there any reason you chose many of the herbs dried instead of fresh?

  7. We’re reading your article on lymphatic cleansing. We made your lemon detox soup
    yesterday for the first time. It tastes great.
    Thank you for all the information on lymphatic cleansing. We will be following these
    My 67 yr old husband has swelling in his left leg and foot. It’s less swollen in the morning,
    and swelling increases through the day. The foot can have pitting edema at times.
    This is not sudden but has been on going for awhile. He has no other symptoms.
    Thank you, again, for both the article and the recipe.

  8. Okay y’all, this is easily one of the fastest, easiest, most delicious and nutritious soups I’ve ever made! Such a great template – very easy to substitute and add to. Much gratitude to the author for expanding my culinary world in such a simple yet effective way!

    P.S. Works great as a sauce for veggies and wild-caught salmon too!

  9. Wonderful site, Mr. Jockers. So very appreciate your openness and dedication.

    Unfortunately with a salicylate sensitivity, there are so many things I cannot use. Don’t know what you can do for that problem either. Sigh. It is so restrictive.

  10. I didn’t have all the herbs available, so only used basil, cumin, and garlic. I’ll try it again when I have all the ingredients, but it was pretty good anyway.

    I do have a question: if this is for detox, why is it listed as a side dish? Wouldn’t that defeat the detox?
