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.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • flesh of 1 ripe avocado

  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth

  1. Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add water as needed for desired consistency. I only used about 1-2 tablespoons as I don't mind a thick soup.

    Spring is certainly keeping us waiting this year, I am just about done with snow for this century!

    I have never tried chilled soup before, so this will be an interesting test, I think I will wait until summer though, this weather is more HOT soup weather.

    Maybe this recipe would work warm as well?

    I want spring too!!! And we started our “spring break” with a blizzard. Also, just wanted to mention – I HAVE been witness to one of those toddler tantrums in Target, and they are not pretty…especially when you’re the mom!!!!

    I will join you in your temper tantrum…I want Spring, at least in time for Easter on Sunday.

    I have never thought to add coconut milk to guacamole…will give it a try, sounds good. Thanks!

    Gina, this looks very tempting, love the idea of combining the avocado with the broth, lime, and coconut milk. I’m giving this five stars and saving the recipe to try later (though I will skip the prosciutto and probably the feta), thanks! We had snow in the past week, too, very late for snow in the Puget Sound region! We also had hail, mist and rain, but I’m not complaining because there was also sun in the mix!

    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?

      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!
