Avocado + Lime Soup


Posted on   Category: Lean Lunches

I know what you’re thinking, avo soup sounds kinda weird. It’s actually deliciously filling (unlike most soups) and more like a smoothie bowl than a consomm√©. I used to hate avocado when I lived in the UK – it was always kinda slimy (aka overripe) and rarely made it onto my plate. Since living in Aus, I’m a convert – they’re fresh, firm and truly nourishing. Australians eat more avocados per head then any other English speaking country – 3.4 kilos a year. I think I personally raise the country’s average score by eating around 4 whole fruits a week, but whatevs. Packed with healthy fats and fibre, this soup will keep you full for hours – no dipping bread or croutons required! If you want to amp up the protein, you can add a scoop of unflavoured protein powder before blending, or top with some freshly cooked prawns. Yum.
