Chilled Cream of Avocado Soup Recipe

What can you do with ripe avocados? Well, you can turn it into a tasty chilled avocado soup dish. You don’t need a stove to make this cold and creamy soup. Traditional cold soups like a homemade gazpacho made from fresh raw tomatoes require peeling and boiling your tomatoes first before blending it. A ripe avocado is creamy and fleshy enough to be pureed without any heat. All you need is a food processor to combine your fresh and ripe avocados, chicken broth, onion, and heavy cream. Serve this delicious dish with a kale caesar salad on the side. 

Tips on Making Chilled Cream of Avocado Soup

There are fun variations to try when making this avocado cream soup. It’s a simple dish that promises a lot of flavors when you try adding in other ingredients. That’s why we listed some helpful tips on how you can make your avocado soup even more delicious.

  • Use ripe avocados. Your avocados are ripe when they yield to a bit of pressure when pressed. The feeling should be soft, but not too “mushy.” If they’re not yet ripe, you can put them in a brown paper bag at room temperature, and they should be ready in 2 to 5 days. Adding an apple or banana to the bag speeds up the process, because they give off ethylene gas, which promotes ripening.
  • Substitute chicken broth with vegetable stock for a healthy, vegetarian alternative. You may need to add extra salt for taste.
  • Add in lime and cilantro as alternative additions for this recipe. It gives the cream soup an extra kick of tang and herb flavors that blend well with the rich avocado taste.
  • Try adding chili pepper or chili sauces for some spice. You can use jalapeño chile pepper, serrano chile, or other chili flakes. Make sure it’s seeded and chopped before adding into the mix. For chili sauces, you can use Tabasco sauce.
  • Garnish with watercress leaves or caviar. Finish off the dish with some delicious topping choices like watercress leaves for a fresh and peppery taste. Alternatively, adding caviar would bring a subtle saltiness to mix with your cold and creamy avocado soup.

Prep: 30 mins
Chill: 2 hrs
Total: 2 hrs 30 mins
Serves:

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe avocados, large and pitted
  • cups chicken broth, chilled and solidified fat removed
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, freshly ground
  • watercress leaves, for garnish
  • caviar, optional garnish

Instructions

  1. Place avocado in the food processor. If possible, keep the shell of each avocado intact and reserve it for serving, keeping them covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator.
  2. Add the onion, garlic, and half of the lemon juice to the avocado in the food processor.
  3. Process until smooth pureed, stopping a few times as necessary to scrape down the bowl.
  4. Set a fine-meshed strainer over a large mixing bowl and use a rubber spatula to press the puree through the strainer.
  5. Stir in 2 cups of the chicken broth and all of the cream until thoroughly blended.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add more lemon juice if needed.
  7. Cover the bowl and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  8. Taste the chilled soup and, if necessary, adjust the seasonings with a little more salt, pepper and lemon juice.
  9. If you'd like it a little thinner, stir in some of the remaining chilled chicken broth.
  10. Place the avocado shells, if using, inside individual bowls to hold them level.
  11. Ladle the soup into the shells, or into chilled serving bowls.
  12. Garnish each serving with watercress leaves and, if you like, a small dollop of caviar.

Commonly Asked Questions

How long can you keep avocado soup in the fridge?

Your chilled cream of avocado soup can last up to 3 to 4 days in the fridge. If placed in the freezer, it can last for up to 2 months. Make sure that you keep it in a freezer safe airtight container. When ready to serve, let the avocado soup thaw at room temperature on the counter.

 

Can you use frozen avocado in soup?

It’s best to use fresh and ripe avocados for this recipe since it’s soft enough to be pureed. Frozen avocados work best when you’re making smoothies or dips, but adding it onto the soup mixture might ruin its texture. However, if you only have frozen avocados, we highly recommend thawing the avocados first at room temperature for at least 8 hours.
