Summer, Don’t Leaf Me!
Chilled Avocado and Mango Soup
Dice 4 mangoes and 3 avocados and place in a large, wide pot, reserving a small handful of the diced avocado. Add about 1 cup of half & half and 1-2 tablespoons of crema mexicana. Blend with your hand-held immersion blender. For a while. For a very long time. Your hand should begin to vibrate on its own you’re blending so long.
Taste. Adjust with more half & half or crema mexicana if necessary. Add the juice of one lime, a couple dashes of white wine and a handful of mint leaves. Blend again.
Blend again. There should be no chunks. None.
Serve in the prettiest bowl you have and garnish with the reserved avocado and a mint leaf.
