Cantaloupe and Avocado Soup Recipe

Hello and happy Labor Day holiday weekend, for those in the USA! This summer really flew by, huh? In honor of the unofficial end of summer, I have a Cantaloupe and Avocado Soup recipe to share with you guys as part of my ongoing Almond Breeze recipe development partnership.

This vegan soup is cool, refreshing and bright – perfect as a barbeque appetizer or light lunch to savor summer’s last produce.

Even better is that it could not be easier to make! This is basically one of those “toss everything in a blender, blend, serve” type of recipes, which I love.

This soup is best served cold, but if you chill it after blending, the avocado will turn a little brown, which isn’t cute; I recommend chilling the ingredients BEFORE blending and serving immediately after. :)

Cantaloupe Avocado Soup

by fANNEtastic food

Prep Time: 10 minutes

 

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 4 cups diced cantaloupe (skin and seeds removed)
  • 1 ripe avocado (skin and pit removed)
  • 1 cup unsweetened original Almond Breeze
  • 2 packed tablespoons fresh basil
  • 2 packed tablespoons fresh mint
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • garnish (optional): olive oil, black pepper, diced cantaloupe and avocado, fresh mint and basil leaves

Instructions

Blend cantaloupe, avocado, Almond Breeze, basil, mint, lemon zest, and lemon juice together until very smooth.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with desired garnishes.

Tip: Start with cold ingredients so you don’t have to chill the soup after you blend it (the avocados will oxidize and turn the soup brown if you reserve it in the fridge).

Let me know how you guys like it! :)

And now, to cap off this recipe post, something a little different that I’ve been meaning to do for awhile now: a survey! I’m partnering up with Almond Breeze for this survey, which will help me to find out a little more about you guys, why you enjoy reading my blog, what you’d like to see more (or less) of, and whether this blog or other blogs influence your buying decisions. Some of the questions were developed by the Almond Breeze team and some were included by me. I know you’re all busy and I really appreciate you taking the time to share some feedback with us via the survey! Click here to take the survey.

The survey should only take you about 10-15 minutes to complete and all your answers will be anonymous. As an incentive to fill out the survey, I have one $100 VISA gift card to giveaway! To enter to win the gift card, simply fill out the survey and then come back and leave a comment here on this page saying you did so to be entered to win. I’ll pick a winner sometime in September and will email them directly to claim their prize.

Thank you so much for your help, and, as always, for reading my blog! I’m looking forward to seeing your answers and using them to help me make sure that this blog is one that you find helpful, fun, and inspiring. :)

    I took the survey – thanks! At the bottom of one of the pages, it asked something like if you ever purchase anything you see on a blog and I said yes, and then it popped up a text box asking if you kept purchasing it. I answered in the text box but the survey wouldn’t continue. I had to click “No” to keep going. Just thought I’d let you know about the quirk.

  96. 111

    I took the survey. I agree with lots of other comments that the hardest was ranking the type of posts I like because I love almost all of your posts. You have a such a great blog and I said no that I hadn’t tried a lot of the restaurants/classes/activities that you recommend but only because I live in San Diego. Next time I visit my mom who lives in the DC area I am going to try out a few of your recommendations, especially for yoga!

  97. 113

    Yay surveys!

  98. 114

    I just completed your survey. Two things I did not mention – I LOVE your protein packed pancakes (with a little almond butter and lots-o-berries) and the “favorites” category in your recipes. Love.

    Took the survey. Had trouble with the rankings since many listed would be number one for me. Love your writing and your photos. Would love to eat at many of the places you recommend, but I’m living in New York City. For that reason I am also unable to go to the classes you recommend. So hope you realize that in the survey many people are not saying yes to those questions because we do not live in or near DC. Love your recipes, innovation and risk taking with food and in your life.

  109. 128

    I took the survey! Thanks for all of the awesome recipes!!

    Hi Anne,
    I took the survey – I realised it didn’t have a box for me to say what I love about the site, only what I would suggest for improvement (which isn’t really much, just me wishful thinking that you can magically come to Australia and give me equally good local recommendations!) So I want to say that I really enjoy the variety on your blog, your writing style and your photos, and the recipes are great for introducing me to new ideas and yummy things! Thanks!

    Entered the survey! Love the recipes and especially the running tips and race recaps. It is especially helpful when I run a new race in the DC area. Your recaps on the Nike women’s half, cherry blossom 10 miler, and army 10 miler were very helpful. Now if only there was a recap on the Marine Corps Marathon…maybe next year? :)

    I might also take a stab at this recipe. Would it be ok to use cow’s milk instead of Almond Milk? (Sorry if that makes sponsors cringe.)

    I took the survey! I do not live in the DC area so I haven’t tried some of the recommendations you have given. I would like to visit DC in the future. I know I would visit of course all the touristy things, but then visit local eats and do different activities. Additionally, I would like to see Europe after seeing all our pictures from your mosey recent vacation.
