Healthy Avocado Garlic Soup

garlic avocado parsley soupI’m going to have to thank my mom for giving me this recipe. But, I also have to thank the lady she works with who brought some of this work. If not for these two this cold soup wouldn’t have passed my lips.

And by passed my lips I mean changed my life.

When my mother first told me about it, I laughed.

Cold soup??? Out of avocado?!?!? What the crap were they thinking???? You don’t make soup out of avocado.

And I…


have never done cold soup.

This recipe calls for chicken stock.  Since so many different levels of vegetarianism exist, I still call it vegetarian since there are those who are and still eat two-legged animals such as chicken and turkey (Pescetarianism). There once was a time in my life where I was pescetarian lacto-ovo. Meaning, I would eat chicken, turkey, seafood, dairy and eggs. Everything was grass-fed and free range. It was rare that I ate this stuff. Best part was I lost a LOT of weight and even began running. There seriously was no worst part, other than a divorce that landed me 1000 miles away and starting life over. Because I had to eat what was available to me, meat-eating was constantly on the menu. Old habits came back. Old habits that got worse and added new crap habits on top of it.

I’m creating change now. One meal at a time.

To make this vegan, swap the chicken stock for vegetable stock.

Simple switch. The flavor will be a little bit different, but it’s not really noticeable. I’ve made it both ways now and enjoyed both versions so much that I lick my bowl clean.

Did you get a visual?

I’m sure you did.

It’s ok. I laugh too.

I can’t even describe how wonderful this soup is.

Its YUM-tastic. Its ahhhh-maz-ing.

I’ve made two batches now and since I am the only one who eats it..

Well, I’ve had it daily for a few weeks now.

But, that’s ok. My avocado addition is much like my pumpkin addiction.

I almost always have avocados on hand. Especially since I went low carb and tried to watch my sugars. Avocado became my go-to treat for breakfast with my eggs. I chopped it and put on salads.

I’ve been experimenting with a lot lately and when I am finished with my next smoothie/protein powder cookbook I am bound and determined to make a little booklet just for avocados. Of course, by the time that happens it will be fall and I will be singing pumpkin praises again!

Let’s just say, I’ve been discovering new recipes that contain this super food that doesn’t require tortilla chips!

My mom showed up with this recipe in hand and I just stared at it. Seemed easy enough and sounded yummy. But, that cold soup thing really put me off.  There was quite a bit of determination to try it though. I’m on a mission to find healthier recipes to eat. I’ve been having a hard time with pain management and keeping my weight down. YUM is on a mission to find healthier recipes that the whole family can enjoy.

While Mr. Yum isn’t quite a fan of cold soups and was a bit more put off than I was, he did try a bite. He said it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t something he was going to break down the kitchen door for!

I however disagree.

This was the simplest, most creamy-est, amazing-est thing I have ever tried.

Yes. Cold soup. Sort of like yogurt. Only better.

Like I said, I gobbled this up in a few days. Kiddo didn’t stand a chance. It was gone before she arrived.

I made the second batch while she was here, but by the time it was cold, she was on her way home.

That’s ok. I know this is something I am going to make again and I have a feeling it’s going to be a summer staple for me as I can create it in a matter of minutes in the morning and it will be ready by lunch.

You don’t even have to chop the avocado if you don’t want to 😉 Unless it’s not ripe enough. Then you may want to break it down a bit so it will fit better in the blender or food processor.

Once it comes out of the blended I stored it in a bowl with a lid and stuck it in the fridge for a few hours.

I’ll be honest, for my first bowl I didn’t wait for it to be chilled. I ate some the moment it was all put together. Still yum!

  1. Hi Chrystal,

    I love cold soups in the summer. I just made a strawberry/melon soup that I’ll be posting soon. I haven’t had avocado yet but I can imagine by your description and the yummy picture that it’s fantastic!
    Thanks for a great recipe. 🙂

    1. I don’t think I have seen a strawberry melon soup! Sounds delish now that I have broke my cold soup fear. I guess I just imagined them to be too much like a smoothie or something.

  2. Hi Chrystal! I’m stopping in from Let’s Get Real today. I have to say that I have never had a cold soup. They really do sound strange to me. It’s like it should be called something else. However, I also have an obsession with avocado right now so I’m excited to try this soup. I like how easily it comes together. How does the color hold up when you are refrigerating it?

    1. I noticed by day 2 it had the browning like avocadoes tend to do, but once I stirred it up, it was bright green again. This soup didn’t last past day 2 in my kitchen 😉

    1. Between pumpkin addiction in the fall and my avocado addiction in the summer….
      oh, who am I kidding…I eat these both as often as possible!
      I never tried cold soup until this recipe and its changed my world!

  3. I have never tried cold soup, but I am an avocado LOVER! I am a bit trepidatious like you were, but I will have to give this a try. HUGS

  4. My husband has read about the health benefits of avocado, and has been eating one almost every day. Thanks for linking up to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Party. I have pinned it to the Bloggers Brags Pinterest Board.

    1. For a while I was eating 1 a day, too. I had to cut it down to slices and bit every other day or so. It’s so easy to over-consume calories when you are trying to reduce them!

  5. I only eat soup in the winter, so I will tuck this away for when the weather gets cold. It sounds awesome.

  6. I have to be honest, I’ve never tried cold soup before. It sounds horrible to me. HOWEVER, this could be what changes my mind. The ingredients sound tasty, and it looks thick enough that it could be a dip!

    1. I love them in a salad. They are very good for breakfast with a fried egg with just enough yolk to make for a creamy treat. That is, if you like eggs. I also like to scoop out the flesh, put it in a bowl, add some salt, pepper and lemon juice. Smash it and either eat it, put it on toast with chickpeas, tomatoes, egg salad , or other toppings. So good.

  7. I have to admit, I’ve never tried cold soup before. I’m so sheltered, lol! This looks delicious though, and if I were going to try cold soup, this would be the one!

    1. The first batch I made was a lot like pudding. Very thick and smooth. The next batch I made was creamy, but still thick. Not at all like a broth based soup. Its even thicker than say…clam chowder.

  8. I have never heard of this kind of soup before, but it sounds insanely healthy! Avocado and garlic are very good for you, what an interesting recipe; I’d love to try it.

  9. That looks delicious. I would totally eat that, but I’d have to rename it. I cannot fathom cold soup. Maybe I’ll call it avocado garlic pudding….okay maybe I’ll keep trying to name it lol.

    1. I’m not sure. I don’t think I have ever eating a cooked avocado. I have eaten them where they get warmed by other foods like when I put them in a salad with some chicken or steak. Or, when I put a fried egg on top of them.

  10. Ok, I Am avocado obsessed and yet have not heard of an avocado soup! I’m going to have to give this a try!

  11. I can honestly say that I have never had a cold soup. I have heard of it just never tried it before. I think I would be willing to try……….

  12. I love cold soup in the summertime. I usually make my strawberry soup, but I’m definitely going to try this one. Avocados are high up on the list of my favorite foods. Looks delicious.

  13. I am a BIG avocado fan! I sometimes have it for lunch with just milk and sugar added to it. I haven’t tried avocado soup though. Would love to try it.

    1. I’ve never tried it with milk and sugar. I would have to use a low carb and sugar free version. I think you will really like the soup.

  14. I love avocados and never thought that a soup could be made. I’m used to hot soup so not sure how I would like this but I’m definitely going to give it a try! =)

  15. I know lots of people who’d love this. Me personally, I have an issue with the texture of avocados and feel of cold soup…I’m weird – I know. 🙂

  16. I admit that I have an addiction to avocados too. I’m not so sure about cold soup though. I do need to work on keeping my weight down too but it’s so hard. I love my carbs. I have chronic low back pain and fibromyalgia.

    1. When I stick to sugar free / low carb / keto / lchf eating , my aches and pains are much more managable. I have degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis in my hips and arthritis in my hands, so I completely understand. I really need to stick with this eating plan so I will feel better.

  17. I never had cold soup before, but I think I would really enjoy it. This will be my first cold soup, because I love garlic and avocados!

  18. Hmm.. I love soup but I cannot imagine cold soup. I love avocados, but have only smashed them up with lime juice, salt, and cilantro. Not sure how I feel about the raw garlic. I’m the only one in the family who likes avocado, so I might need to make this on a day everyone else has leftovers.

  19. Avocado garlic soup doesn’t sound really yummy for me. I will try it though, hopefully it taste good 🙂 thanks for the recipe.

  20. This is interesting. I have never honestly tried cold soup an now I am tempted. Thanks for sharing will give this a try. Love avocados.
