SOUPURE - Nutrient Rich Soups

Here’s a twist on the juice cleanse craze that we can’t get away from. Soupure, founded by Angela Blatteis and Vivienne Vella is a "grab and go" liquid option designed to be hearty while offering energy and optimal nutritional value.

Soupure is a home made, home delivery "souping" service that offers packs of broths, protein packs, 1 to 5 day custom cleanses, oncology support packages and a variety of cold and hot soup varieties and infused alkaline water supplements. Choose from flavors such as Pumpkin Miso, Japanese Sweet Potato, Lemongrass Consomme, Pineapple Cucumber Water, and Strawberry Cashew.

Blatteis and Vella both have family members who suffered from cancer, so they understood the challenges in finding good tasking nutritious soups that were non-GMO, natural, and not filled with sodium, cream and preservatives.

If you’re left feeling hungry and confused by a juice cleanse, Soupure could be a great alternative as you can choose from rich cold and hot soups, tonics and waters for a snack, a meal, a starter course or a refreshing beverage, or a cleanse. They are made from all organic foods, filled with fiber, whole foods and protein rich ingredients.

Soupure is now serving up and delivering single-service bottles, as well as cleanses, weekly throughout and within a 350 mile radius of Los Angeles County (national starting Sumer 2015) and is retailing at Soupure’s new kiosk location in Brentwood Town Center, as well as at Cardio Barre Studio City.
