Chilled Avocado Citrus Soup

A refreshing chilled avocado citrus soup with lime and cilantro.

Guys, there is snow in the forecast today. Snow. On March 25th. Inside this makes me want to kick and scream like a whiny little brat child in the toy aisle of Target. “But whhhyyyy can’t spring just get it’s shit together already??!!” (because by 5 years old I was probably using the word shit in sentences). Outwardly, I’m still maintaining an adult like composure to the situation. If we get snow in April though, all bets are off.

Turning 31 in that month is trauma enough.

So I’m just pretending like this isn’t actually happening.

Kinda like I pretended pizza is paleo, fro-yo is healthy because of all the probiotics in it (duh) and a small doesn’t count when it comes to McDonald’s fries this weekend.

In my head there are leaves on the trees, it’s 90+ degrees outside and a chilled avocado + citrus soup is a perfectly reasonable meal.

Had I not pretended the pizza was paleo, I wouldn’t have had the lovely crispy prosciutto to top the soup with and considering that was my favorite part, I might just have to continue this little mind game I’m playing.

I love your recipe for this soup. I live in Singapore so a chilled soup is a great thing in our heat. Gina, have you ever tried to make and freeze or do you think that would utterly destroy it? Thanks!

Hi Lucy - I haven't tried freezing this and I'm thinking the avocado might get funky if you do so not totally sure I'd recommend that, sorry!
