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.

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.
