Chilled Spicy Avocado Soup


Avocado is a fruit packed with nutrition, which is also very tasty! I did not grow up eating avocado. But once I tasted it, just fell in low with the versatility pf this fruit/ vegetable. I could be used in guacamole, which every one knows. But did you knw it can be used in smoothies, cakes and desserts too!

Here is a spicy chilled soup for the hot summer.
It is pretty hot and humid in Virginia right now and this cool soup will be refreshing!
It's very easy to make and tastes delicious.

Get Ready

  • 1 small avocado
  • 1/2 small cucumber
  • 1 green chilli
  • 1 in. ginger peeled
  • 1/2 cup Plain yogurt
  • 2 tsp. of lemon juice
  • A handful of cilantro
  • Salt to taste
  • Paprika to garnish (optional)


  • Peel and pit the avocado.
  • Chop the cucumber and take out the seeds.
  • In a blender, add the flesh of the avocado, cucumber, green chilli, ginger, cilantro, salt, 2 tsp. of lemon juice, and blend till creamy.
