Did you know avocados are actually a fruit and not a vegetable? They are tasty and good for you too! They are loaded with potassium (more than bananas) and fiber. Try this light and tangy green soup on a hot summer day! And eat it with a nice peice of bread for dunking. Yum!


  • 2 ripe avocados chopped
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • zest from one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon basil chopped
  • 2 teaspoons shallots minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until very smooth.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the flavors blend (can be made the night before).
  3. Taste, Soup will taste very mild when first blended, but don’t add more salt at this point.
  4. Final seasoning after cooling is done. Taste to see if you’d like more salt or lemon.
