Cold Avocado Soup Recipe

You'll find this velvety green soup a perfect starter for warm weather meals. Try it with grilled chicken or a juicy steak at dinner time, or serve it with sandwiches for lunch.

Step 1

Pit and peel the avocado, then cut into chunks. In a blender, whirl the avocado, half and half, broth and lemon juice until smooth. (To prepare in a food processor, whirl the avocado with the half and half until pureed then add the broth and lemon juice and whirl until smooth.)

Step 2

Ladle the soup into wide shallow bowls. Garnish each portion with chives, if desired.
