Ingredients

  • 4 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and quartered
  • 1 seedless cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 1 1/2 Cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 Cups chicken broth
  • 2 Tablespoons honey, preferably Golden Blossom

  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 scallions, chopped, for garnish
  • 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped, for garnish

Directions

Place all of the ingredients except for the garnish in a blender. Process until puréed and smooth. If the soup is too thick, thin with more broth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Spoon into bowls, garnished with chopped scallions and tomatoes.

Avocado Shopping Tip

Avoid very soft avocados; choose those that yield slightly to finger pressure.

Avocado Cooking Tip

Avocados oxidize quickly; use lemon juice to keep the flesh from turning brown.
