Caribbean Avocado Soup

While in the West avocados are considered like a luxury, they are known as the butter of the poor in most of tropical parts where they grow abundantly all year around. In these countries they provide a handy source of protein and vitamins.
There is a very simple and refreshing soup recipe.

For 4 people :
  • 3 ripe Avocados.
  • 2 stalks of Spring onions, finely chopped.
  • 1 tablespoon Lime juice.
  • 590ml/ 2 1/2 cups of Milk or Soy milk (for a dairy free option).
  • Salt and Pepper

Open the avocado by doing an incision all around and move gently the two pieces against each other until they open by themselves. Then scoop the flesh out and place it in a food processor adding immediately the lime juice to avoid its oxidation. Add the scallions some salt and pepper and blitz it to a fine mixture. Then add progressively the milk (or Soy milk) while using the food processor to a medium speed.

Serve Chilled.
