The cleanse is intended to take you through Monday-Friday.
Suppa Club Soup Cleanse
Every now and then your digestive system needs a rest. Consuming liquids only for 5 days allows your body to divert energy it would usually use in digestion towards eliminating toxins and rebuilding at a cellular level. A well designed program like the Suppa Club Soup Cleanse will curb cravings and hunger during the cleanse, and will leave you feeling lighter, brighter and more energetic at the end.
Cleansing, but make it soup.
Soup is the ultimate detoxifying food, as it’s easy to digest whilst also being nutrient dense. At Suppa Club we’re about nourishing the body with pure ingredients. Our soups retain 100% of the fibre and nutrients that go into the pot, with nothing strained out or discarded. The cooking process makes the ingredients in our soups more bioavailable, ensuring that your cleanse packs a double punch on the nutrition front. The Suppa Club Soup Cleanse plan has been designed in collaboration with Heath Daly (qualified naturopath and owner of renowned plant-based restaurant The Raw Kitchen) to provide all that your body needs to get through the day, whilst still allowing your metabolism a bit of a break so that your cells can detoxify and rebuild.
How it works
You will have 3 soups per day for 5 days.
A combination of chilled and warm soups is recommended.
Orders are due by 12 noon Monday for Thursday/Friday delivery.
Below is our suggested Cleanse Combo, however you are welcome to switch out one flavour for another if you prefer.

Our soups and why they’re perfect for cleansing.
Turmeric, Carrot, Apple & Ginger - Carrot Apples, Onion, Garlic, Ginger
Turmeric is famous for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which are ideal aids in a cellular cleanse. When cooked in with other veggies, turmeric also helps retain optimal levels of the fat-soluble antioxidant beta carotene (present in carrots, for example), making turmeric a contender for Most Valued Player in our suite of spices.
Garlic and onion are both rich in organic sulphur compounds, which is instrumental in cellular detoxification . Ginger is a potent carmative that soothes the digestive system and helps dispel gas from the bowels. Together, turmeric, ginger, garlic and onions help to ‘warm up’ and tonify the digestive tract. Apples contain fibre and polyphenols that help regulate healthy gut florea, which is key to a successful cleanse.
Roasted Cauliflower & Sweet Potato - Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, Carrot, Garlic, Rasel Hanout (spice)
Cruciferous vegetables are the leaders of the pack when it comes to cleansing, and cauliflower is no exception. Cauliflower stimulates the Nrf2 pathway which releases antioxidants inside the cells so they can cleanse themselves - nature at its best! Unlike many other starchy vegetables, sweet potato lowers blood sugar and improves insulin metabolism, which will help to stabilise your appetite and limit sugar cravings during the cleanse. Sweet potato is also a rich source of antioxidants and is very nutritionally dense.
Pumpkin & Coconut - Pumpkin, Leek, Carrot, Garlic, Coconut Cream, Turmeric, Paprika, Nutmeg, Cinnamon
Coconut has the perfect fat profile for cleansing - the short chain fatty acids feed gut flora and power up energy-producing glands like the thyroid. As an added bonus, it has antimicrobial properties as well.
Pumpkin is sweet and nourishing, with significant amounts of beta carotene, however it’s pumpkin’s low calorie count that is key in this cleanse. Pumpkin consists mainly of water, so the sweetness it offers is a real treat, minus the empty calories that often accompanies sweet foods.
Leeks (along with garlic and onions) are part of the Allium family, which is known for its potent antioxidant properties, and for reducing inflammation in the body. Leeks are also abundant with the flavonoid kaempferol, which protects artery linings from free radical damage. If that wasn’t enough already, leeks are also high in the important B vitamin, folate.
Our unique blend of turmeric, paprika, nutmeg and cinnamon is an antimicrobial, warming digestive tonic, which is ideal for cellular cleansing.
Beetroot & Horseradish - Beetroot, Sour Cream or Coconut Cream, Horseradish, Fresh Lemon
Beetroot contains phytonutrients called Betalains, which are powerful in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as being effective detoxifying agents. Betalains help support the all-important Phase 2 detox pathway through the liver, which involves the key intracellular detox antioxidant Glutathione.
Horseradish is another cruciferous vegetable whose primary value in this cleanse is the heating effect it has on the body. Horseradish clears mucus and congestion in the lungs and upper respiratory system, includes the sinuses. Lemon is a great source of vitamin C, which works to neutralise free radicals in your body tissues. Lemons are a super cleanser that stimulate the liver and bile synthesis, which is another key to effective detoxification.
Cucumber, Mint & Dill - Cucumber, Sour Cream, Red Onion, Fresh Lemon
Cucumbers are very hydrating, which is very important during the cleansing process. Mint soothes the digestive tract, dispelling gas and easing discomfort. Dill contains phytochemicals that help in attaching Glutathione molecules to toxins, thereby disabling them altogether.
Spiced Zucchini, Kale & Broccoli - Zucchini, Kale, Broccoli, Silverbeet, Onion, Garlic, Harissa, Cumin, Mild Curry Powder
Kale, silverbeet and broccoli are cruciferous vegetables with plenty of organic sulphur, making them an excellent base for any detoxification program. These greens are also incredibly nutrient dense, offering high amounts of protein, vitamins and minerals to support your body through the cleanse. Kale in particular is a superstar because it contains an unusually high amount of an antioxidant called Lutein. This phytonutrient protects and heals the eyes, and will be partly responsible for the sparkle in your eyes as day 5 of this cleanse rolls around.
Hunger pangs are common with liquid fasts, but much less so with a soup cleanse. Our soups are a jar of wholefoods goodness, blitzed up to make it more easily digestible. You’re still getting plenty of fibre, which helps to curb cravings and make you feel satiated. We recommend having half a jar at a time this way you spread out the intake but keep hunger at bay.
Our handmade soups retain the original fibre content of the ingredients we use. Everything that goes into the soup stays in - nothing is discarded as it is in the cold pressed juicing process. This is part of the reason that hunger and cravings are less likely with a soup cleanse.
For maximum benefit, we recommend that you drink only filtered water and non-caffeinated herbal tea while you cleanse. If you absolutely can’t live without coffee, try to cut back on the amount you would usually drink, and have it black with no sugar.
Of course! You can start your cleanse over the weekend, but most people find it easier to begin Monday, finishing on the Friday evening of the same week.
Yes, all our soups are gluten free, however please note that our kitchen is not certified gluten free, so we can’t guarantee the absence of trace elements.
