If you know me, you know that I LOVE avocados. This green soup is similar to a Gazpacho (a gazpacho is a cold soup traditionally made from a base of tomatoes, peppers and other vegetables). This soup deviates from the traditional, and calls for cucumber as a base, building on the flavor with celery for some saltiness (and circulation benefits!), avocado for creaminess (and a good healthy fat), chili for some kick and fresh dill for a unique refreshing taste.
The words “cold” and “soup” in the same sentence usually leave people feeling a bit conflicted, but fear not! I used to react this way too, but once I actually got around to giving this recipe a try, I realized how incredibly delicious it can be! I like to tell people it’s just like a smoothie in a bowl….only savory!
I hope you enjoy this recipe….i know this cold soup will leave you feeling refreshed, happy, and a little bit healthier!
