Dairy-Free Creamy Avocado Soup

I swear it tastes better than it sounds — it’s not like a green-eggs-and-ham kind of thing. So let’s make some soup, shall we?

The super-ripe avocados make it extra creamy and it’s best topped with a few diced chives and possibly another dollop of yogurt. Trust me, the name "creamy" rings true here, as the dairy-free yogurt adds a smooth, rich touch.

Ingredients

  • 3 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • 2 Cups plain dairy-free yogurt
  • 1/3 Cup cashews
  • 1/3 Cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 Cup chopped Vidalia onion
  • 1 Tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Cup green tea, brewed and chilled
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • 2 chives, chopped finely

Directions

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the avocados, yogurt, cashews, cilantro, onion, balsamic vinegar, green tea, sea salt, and pepper. Pulse until smooth. Remove from the blender, transfer to a bowl, and cover. Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Ladle soup into 4 bowls and serve chilled. Garnish with the chives.

Dairy Shopping Tip

Buy cultured dairy products like yogurt, sour cream, and buttermilk; these contain live, active bacteria (the friendly kind) that have been shown to ease certain digestive problems.

Dairy Cooking Tip

Products like buttermilk and yogurt make for flavorful marinades that tenderize – use yogurt marinades for lamb or try soaking chicken or fish fillets in buttermilk before frying.
