Chilled Avocado Soup with Dill, Coconut and Nuts

Ingredients

Ingredients – Water, Dill, Red Wine Vinegar, Red Onion, Walnuts, Avocado and Coconut Milk

Many years ago, during a summer in New York, I was introduced to cold soups. Yes, with the popular tomato-based Gazpacho Soup. I will admit, it look me awhile to get used too – cold soup – but now I actually look forward to it in the warmer months when Summer comes around.

Today, wanting to try something that my (almost 3-year-old) could help me with I came up with a Chilled Avocado Soup. You can tell from his face in the photo below how much he LOVED being involved. I mean, when I turned that blender on it was priceless. Of course, he wasn’t interested in helping with the dishes…. But that is a whole other story!

This soup takes minimal down time as there is no cooking involved. It is more like a smoothie kind of vibe – you put everything in the blender and press blend. Genius right? And, not just that, this soup just doesn’t have to be soup. What I actually found after making it (and you can see from the photos it was a lot of soup) is that it is also perfect as a dip, and as a topping to foods like Veggie Burgers.

WHAT YOU NEED 

  • 2 ripe Avocados
  • 2 cups of Coconut Milk (I used So Delicious)
  • 1/2 cup of nuts (I used walnuts as it was all I had BUT I think Macadamia or Pine Nuts will be tasty too)
  • 1/3 cup of the herb dill and a little extra for the garnish
  • 1/2 cup of diced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
  • 1 cup of water
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

** Please Note – In the Ingredient photo at top I also have lime. I tried some with lime and it did not work! I do not suggest you add lime.

WHAT TO DO

  • Halve the avocados and take out the pips
  • If you feel like it, Be A Hero, and re-grow an avocado tree, from the pip, by following these instructions
  • Scoop out Avocado and place in the blender with all the other ingredients (bar the Lime)
  • Hit Puree and let it go till everything is well blended
  • Transfer to fridge for at least an hour
  • Serve and Garnish as you see fit

Put it all in the blender and hit send

FUN FACT — An avocado fruit is the same size as a baby in its mother’s womb at 4 months along. I bet you didn’t know that one!!

    I love this! Your blog is fantastic! And your little man is adorable. I have a two year old son too. He loves going to the farmer’s market with me every week and getting his “green machine!”
