Avocado Island Chilled Soup

Avocado Island Chilled Soup

This recipe canít be beat for simplicity, but it delivers a real tropical blast of refreshing flavor and health benefits: heart-healthy avocado has scores of phytonutrients, and zingy vitamin-C from limes adds zest.


2 cups celery juice or light vegetable broth
1 or 2 limes, juiced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 shallot, minced
Seasalt and freshly-ground pepper, to taste
1 ripe avocado, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1. Blend juices, olive oil, and shallot in blender until smooth. Refrigerate until well-chilled.

2. Place avocado chunks in individual bowls, blend soup briefly to emulsify, then pour over avocado and serve immediately.

Serves 4.
