Avocado Spinach Soup

The following is a guest post from my friend Heather of Gluten-Free Cat.

Summer is the perfect time for cold soups. They’re cool and refreshing, easy to make, packed with healthy ingredients, and can be served from fridge to bowl in a matter of seconds. Here’s one of my favorite cold creamy soups: avocado spinach soup.

Avocado Spinach Soup

I love to serve this soup in homemade gluten-free bread bowls. You can visit my original post for a tutorial on creating mini bread bowls to learn how. But this soup also tastes great on its own garnished with tomato, cilantro, and a touch of freshly ground black pepper.

Avocado Spinach Soup
Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 4 - 6
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 cups spinach
  • ½ cucumber, peeled
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves (save a few for garnish)

  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ teasooon sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup water (or more for thinner soup)
  • 1 tomato, seeded and chopped
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste
  1. Place the avocados through cayenne pepper in a blender. Slowly add a cup of water and blend until smooth. Add more water if you like a thinner soup.
  2. Pour the soup into bowls and garnish with cilantro leaves, chopped tomato, and a sprinkle of freshly ground pepper.
  3. Serves 12 as appetizers or 4-6 as a meal.



So get blending and enjoy your summer!
