My dear friend just brought me a bucket of 25 haas avocados from her tree tonight! Looks like it's soup weather!

Here's mine:

Chilled AvocadoSoup

Blenderize till smooth:
1 peeled, pitted and sliced avocado (Preferably Haas, or one that is really "buttery")

1/2 c. chicken broth (or you can use bouillon cubes in hot water, but make sure you cool it down before using)

1/2 c. sour cream

1/2 c. light cream

Grated rind of 1 lemon

Put into a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap.
Chill 4 hours. Garnish with fresh dill or sliced chives.

(The surface will darken, so just before serving, discard the top 1/8", then just stir it and serve)

Now these look like some great summer recipes! I've got something similar in one of my cookbooks. But I don't have the avacado soup recipe. That's one I've got to make, and soon. It looks yummy, especially in the heat we've been having.

Here's another for the summer:

AVOCADO SMOOTHIE

1 cup vanilla ice cream
2 ounces lowfat milk
6 ounces avocado
1 1/3 cups frozen strawberries
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
whipped cream

Cut avocado into half. Put ice cream, milk, avocado, and frozen strawberries into blender. Add honey or maple syrup, nutmeg and cinnamon. blend until smooth. Pour into 20 oz. serving cup. Top with whipped cream. Sprinkle extra nutmeg if desired.

JKath; What a gran recipe. I'm gonna have to try that one as well. I wonder if it would adapt to my tofu/fruit smoothie. Sounds like experimentin' time to me.
