When you eat soup, or expect to eat soup, you are prepping to eat a warm broth filled with vegetables, grains, and proteins. What’s different about this soup is that it is served chilled. It’s an appetizing soup, especially in the summer since it can keep you cool and to withstand the heat. The combination of avocado and heavy cream make for a velvety texture that will have you licking the bowl clean.
