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.

cantaloupe soup ingredients

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

Prep Time 10 MINUTES Prep Time
Cook Time
Total Time 10 mins Total Time
This soup is smooth, refreshing, and bright - perfect to savor summer's produce.


  • 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

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).


  1. Blend cantaloupe, avocado, Almond Breeze, basil, mint, lemon zest, and lemon juice together until very smooth.
  2. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with desired garnishes.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

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 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.
