Kiwi Avocado Gazpacho
by Theresa Albert
Makes 4 servings Takes: 5 minutes
With kiwi as green as grass and avocado as rich as kings, this simple, cold summer soup has it all. It is both charming and sincere with a zesty, smooth taste for the princess and yet a thick, creamy heft fit for a troll. Which vessel you drink from will define your role. Choose wisely! Life is all about making choices.
450 ml (2 cups) green salsa (tomatillo)
2 ripe avocados
6 ripe kiwis
1/4 cup cilantro
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 cup cold water
1 tsp honey
Salt and pepper
Empty all into a blender and purée until smooth. Chill in fridge for at least two hours before serving. If you would like to serve immediately, replace cold water with a cup and a half of ice cubes.
