Fawen Drinkable Soup (Broccoli & Cauliflower) review

Fawen Drinkable Soup (Broccoli & Cauliflower)Fawen Drinkable Soup has three varieties currently. I’ve reviewed the Beet and Cabbage previously and last night after an unrelated stomach bug put me out of tasting commission for a week it was my turn to try the broccoli & cauliflower version of the soup.

Kim thought it might be amusing to put her edible pureed tomato soup next to it to show texture differences in drinkable vs edible soup, however the broccoli and cauliflower version of the soup was much thicker than the beet and cabbage, and also ended up being thicker than Kim’s.

The Broccoli & Cauliflower variety tastes like it’s named. It’s got filtered water (assuming NY based on taste,) broccoli, cauliflower, shallots, onions, coconut water concentrate, coconut milk, virgin coconut oil, Himilayan salt, lemon juice, ground turmeric. With the exception of the water and salt everything is listed as organic.

This soup hit a few things for me – as mentioned before I’m not a huge soup fan, I like things either solid or liquid with exceptions made for milkshakes. The Beet & Cabbage drank more like a drink, the Broccoli & Cauliflower was too thick for my tastes.

That said, it’s entirely a personal preference, but I’d classify this version as edible soup in a drink box. While I was a fan of the beet and cabbage variety for it’s cool drinkability, I’d rather have this drink box soup warm, I was not a fan of it at room temps.

All this said, all of this is purely subjective, and in the end if you like the combo of ingredients and thickness you’re going to like it, if not you’re not. If you’re looking to get broccoli and cauliflower in your body to do some good, this is a good way of doing it.

My only criticism of it other than it being a little thick is that I’m not getting what the addition of the coconut products actually achieved other than adding saturated fat to the mix. They weren’t perceptible to me over the headliners. Perhaps it’s thrown in for the coconut oil benefits such as how medium chain fatty acids promote weight loss and muscle building. Maybe it was for flavor and I’m just not picking it up (going to try again tonight).

Anyway, long review short – appears good for you, I’m not particularly a fan of this one, try their sampler pack to see if it’s for you.
