The smooth texture of avocado gives chilled soup a thick consistency, making heavy or sour cream unnecessary; avocado can similarly stand in for butter or cheese in a sandwich.

    I made the recipe exactly as directed. Then I added another small avocado so that is was a little creamier and richer. I was delicious. The recipe also makes a lot more soup that I was expecting. As such, my husband and I eat this for about 4 days straight. I change it up a little, I added grilled shrimp or fish or extra avocado or fresh salsa. I also made grilled cheeses one night as well. All great sides for this soup.

    This was delicious! i substituted dill for cilantro and green pepper for jalapeno (because that's what I had on hand), and the results were just perfect! I love that this recipe doesn't call for unusual ingredients and requires no cooking. just cut it up, blend, and chill. Next time I'll try adding basil or mint. Thank you!

    Checked out this recipe and it is a lot like mine, but i would not add the yogurt, it is great without, and i add a lot of water to get a nice thin consistency. A brought an avocado soup like this to a vegan potluck recently and gave me the recipe, it was delicious and i want to make it again, a great way to stretch out the use avocados. ♥

    I am throwing a vegan party next month and I think this would be a great recipe to make. Any suggestions for a vegan substitute for the yogurt? Also, will the avocado make the soup turn brown if it sits out for a little bit?

      I know you've already had your party but I thought coconut milk would work great...
