I'm a human being on planet earth. I've lived hundreds of lifetimes. In this incarnation I'm here to advance medicine.

The east coast is being bombarded by a harsh heat wave; and if you’re anything like me, the hot, humid, sticky weather can completely squash your desire to cook.

Chilled Avocado Soup

I don’t seem to be one of those people who lose their appetite in the heat, (my appetite is a near constant companion, despite the season), but I do crave cool, no-cook meals in weather that encroaches on the triple digits.

Sure, I could easily eat some ice cream or yogurt for dinner, but I also have a husband to feed… and ice cream does not a manly meal make.

Chilled Avocado Soup

I initially hesitated to call this dish “soup”, because it is a) served cold and b) much thicker than most soups.

So thick, in fact, that it borders on dip-consistency. Look at that creamy texture!

The avocado “soup” is delicious on its own, thanks to tangy buttermilk, tart lime juice, smoky cumin, and verdant cilantro, but it just begs for a textural and color addition.

I went with a combination of sweet (corn) & spicy (chipotle hot sauce) toppings, but you could use whatever you like.

Black beans, chopped tomatoes, crushed tortilla chips… whatever sparks your interest, toss it on.

I hope – for your sake – that you are somewhere less oppressively hot than it is here… but if you are also suffocating in this muggy heat, this avocado soup is one step towards cooling off!

yield: 2 small (side dish or appetizer-size) servings

Soup Ingredients

  • 1 ripe medium-sized avocado, peeled & pitted
  • 1/2 cup low fat buttermilk, well-shaken
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium vegetable stock (or 1/2 cup for a thinner consistency)
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder (I used chipotle chile powder)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Prepare the Avocados

Cut the ripe avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop the flesh into a blender or food processor.

Blend the Avocado Mixture

Add the vegetable broth, Greek yogurt, fresh cilantro, lime juice, minced garlic, and chopped cucumber to the blender or food processor with the avocados. If you like a bit of heat, you can also add the chopped jalapeño pepper. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Season to Taste

Taste the soup and add salt and black pepper to your liking. Blend again to incorporate the seasoning evenly.

Chill the Soup

Transfer the soup to a bowl or container and cover it. Refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld and the soup to chill thoroughly.


When you’re ready to serve, ladle the chilled avocado soup into bowls. Garnish with finely diced red onion and a sprig of fresh cilantro for added freshness and color.


Serve your Chilled Avocado Soup as a refreshing appetizer or a light meal. It’s perfect with a side of crusty bread or tortilla chips for added crunch.
