Cream of Avocado Soup is the perfect soup for summer. It’s savory, creamy and comes out a beautiful summery green. It can be enjoyed hot or room temperature and is ready in less than 30 minutes.
With avocados in season, we're inspired to make everything avocado. Avocados are already very creamy on their own so you don’t need as much cream as your typical cream soup.
You start by cooking everything on the stove. Simmering the avocado in the soup base helps bring out its beautiful green color. Once everything is cooked, it’s pureed in a food processor or blender with a little cream. And then it’s ready to serve! It’s that easy.
2 cloves garlic minced
½ yellow onion minced
2 cups chicken broth divided
2 large avocados pitted and peeled and cut into cubes
1 tbsp lime juice
¼ cup cilantro leaves
½ cup Farmer's All Natural Heavy Whip Cream
salt and pepper to taste
Add garlic and onions and ¼ cup of chicken broth to soup pot and bring to medium high heat. Cook garlic and onions until garlic is lightly browned and onions are translucent.
Add in remaining chicken broth, avocados, lime juice and cilantro. Bring to a simmer and cook 5-10 minutes, until all the flavors come together. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Pour soup into blender. Blend until smooth. Add in cream and blend slowly just until cream is incorporated.
Serve soup immediately. If desired, garnish with fresh slices of avocado, cilantro, and a swirl of sour cream.
