I don’t know about your family but when I was a child, my father ate soup all year round and it was “hot”. I couldn’t stand eating soup during summer time and later on, I found out that I couldn’t stand eating “hot” soup during summer time!
I actually enjoy making “cold” soup during the hot months. It is so refreshing and it is a nice change to serve to your guests. I have been experimenting with different flavors and I have to admit, sometimes I can push it a bit too far. I’m still working on a few new flavors and next year, I will proudly post them for you.
The one I’m about to share with you today is super amazing! Not only it is delicious but it is also very healthy! It all started because David and I eat this fruit regularly. It is a “super food” and its nutrients, vitamins and healthy fats make it extra special. Any guesses as to which fruit I’m talking about… it’s avocado!
We sometimes eat an avocado by scooping the flesh right from an avocado half with a spoon just before dinner. Other times, we use them for making Guacamole as a condiment for sandwiches, nachos, burgers, and so on. One day I wanted to make my gazpacho and I realized I was missing a few ingredients. I looked into my crisper and saw some avocados – and a light came on (it happens sometimes…lol!). It took me a few tries but I got there!
If you enjoy the buttery texture and flavor of this fruit like we do, you will definitely loooove this recipe! To me, this soup is such a flavorful dish! How can you not enjoy the freshness when it’s hot outside? Just a slight warning…after you try it, you’ll be hooked!
