Not only is this Creamy Avocado Soup incredibly easy to make, it’s also keto and paleo! Enjoy it warm, cold, and any time!
Lately, I’ve been on an avocado frenzy! I just love the soft, creamy texture of this low-carb fruit. Not to mention all the health benefits associated with this superfood – it’s high in B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, and healthy omega-3 fatty acids! Yummy! And not much can compete with freshly mashed avocado on a crusty slice of my low-carb Air Fryer Bread.
So then I started wondering, “Could this creamy fruit be turned into a creamy soup?” And the answer is YES! Not only that, but it’s actually really easy and quick to make a delicious avocado soup. All you need is bone broth, ghee or butter, onion, fresh lemon juice, salt and of course AVOCADOS. No fancy ingredients, just wholesome goodness. The soup can be enjoyed warm or cold, any time of the day. And why wouldn’t you? It’s beautiful bright green and delicious!
Tips for making a delicious keto-friendly avocado soup!
Avocados. Avocados are, of course, the star of this soup. So, make sure to pick quality produce. The avocados need to be ripened and soft. I like the large Haas variants. If you buy smaller avocados, you may need 3 or 4, instead of 2. Cut out any brown spots.
Broth. For this recipe, you will need 4 cups of bone broth. I prefer using homemade chicken bone broth, but you can also use store-bought bone broth. Kettle and Fire makes a high-quality keto and paleo-friendly chicken bone broth.
I usually make homemade chicken broth after making a roast chicken. It is pretty simple to make: Add your chicken carcass (with the cartilage, bits and pieces of skin and meat, and the neck) to a slow cooker or large pot, cover completely with water, add salt (and any other spices you like), and 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Bring to boil and then simmer for 24-48 hours. Strain and done!
Butter or ghee. To make a paleo version of this soup, use ghee for this recipe, otherwise simply butter works great.
Cooking. Avocado can turn quite bitter if overcooked. We don’t want that! So, to keep the original flavor of this lovely fruit, we will not cook it in our broth. Instead, we will bring the broth to a boil, take the pot from the saucepan, and only add the avocados then. Problem solved!
Puréeing. You can either purée the avocados in the pot with an immersion blender or in a blender. To purée in a blender, add the avocados first, then pour in the broth (careful, hot!), and blend on low.
Toppings. You can enjoy the soup as is or add some toppings, like roasted sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds, coconut cream (or heavy cream for non-paleo), and even hot sauce.
Add a slice of keto bread and make this a meal!
