This better-for-you warm-weather soup uses avocado instead of heavy cream to get its creamy texture. Eat it on its own or with your favorite turkey sammie for lunch or a light dinner.

Part of the charm of winter is the comfort of a piping-hot bowl of soup. But spring and summer don't have to mean the end of the bowl. This chilled soup featuring all the green goodness of the warmer months is made right in the blender and takes only minutes to prepare.
