Meatless Monday - Avocado Soup

They've been called "poor man's butter" because they can be picked from trees and used as a butter substitute essentially for free, if you live in a place where avocado trees grow. The thing is, they are so much better for you than butter. They are packed with monounsaturated fat that are supposed actually help lower cholesterol.  They also have more potassium than bananas and some other good vitamins and protien.  I just know they are delicious.

This delicious, creamy soup can be served warm or cold and is simple to make.


  • 3 avocados
  • 2 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs lime or lemon juice (juice from 1 fruit)
  • 2 1/2 cups milk (you can use water for a thiner soup) or vegan milk substitute

Slice the avocados in half lengthwise, remove the pit, scoop the pulp into a bowl and mash with a fork.

Add most of the chopped scallions reserving some for a garnish and the lime or lemon juice. Mix well.

Pour in the milk a little at a time then combine in a blender. If serving this soup warm do not boil it.

  3. Never had avocado soup but I eat them plain or with salsa and the fat in the diet is needed as fat is the carrier for vitamins in the diet which I think helps keep colds and flu away, just my take on it anyway. I made my leek and fennel soup again this week and it is green like the color of your avocado soup, cant' wait to try this one. Wonder how potatoes would be as a substitute for the milk?

  5. This looks so good but I have a hard time getting them past the slice and eat stage. I love them so much I have to pace myself.
