Summer, Don’t Leaf Me!
Before everyone jumps on the “I love the fall and its crisp, cool weather” bandwagon (I hate you all) take one of these last 80-something degree days and make a cold, refreshing soup.
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.
I can attest this is a beautiful creation…I might even say one of the tastiest things gansie has ever made for me.
can’t wait till she makes it for scott and me
