Chilled Avocado Soup

Chilled Avocado Soup

Sharing is caring!

Summer is upon us and we are on the quest of eating lighter meals since it is so hot out.  Don’t get us wrong, we are LOVING this.  After living in the Bay Area for 10+ years, it is nice to finally be in a location, where the days and nights are HOT.  Chilled soups are quickly becoming a favorite as is this recipe for a Chilled Avocado Soup.  You are going to love it.

 

I have been spending a little extra time over at Pinterest looking for new inspiration in the way of chilled soups.  There are so many creative culinary geniuses out there.  Here is only a sampling of some that I am dying to make variations of this summer:

While I patiently wait for the bounty of summer produce to arrive in our markets, I took advantage of some gorgeous avocados and developed this delicious (and zesty) avocado soup.  It is light and refreshing.  Dairy-free, and low cholesterol.  You can make it vegetarian or with chicken stock.  The perfect way to say hello to summer.

Do you have a favorite chilled summer soup, you’d love to share with us?  We are looking for new inspiration to add to the above list.
