Creamy Avocado Gazpacho Recipe

Avocados are an excellent source of healthy omega 3 fats and a wide range of phytonutrients. The avocado is likely to provide you with health benefits in the areas of blood sugar control, insulin regulation, satiety and weight management, and decreased overall risk of unwanted inflammation. I like simple recipes that don’t take much time or effort, and this recipe is super-fast and easy in addition to being incredibly nutritious!  The collagen peptides provide a clean source of amino acids which complement this fiber rich and nutrient-packed summer soup.

Servings: 1-2
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes


  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted
  • 1 cup full-fat unsweetened coconut milk yogurt
  • ¼ cup fresh mint, minced (or 4 whole sprigs)
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, minced (or 4 whole leaves)
  • 1 small handful fresh spinach
  • 2 Tbsp. raw tahini
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. wheatgrass powder (optional)
  • 1-2 scoops collagen peptides (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste (optional)


Simply add all ingredients into a blender and blend into a smooth, thick, creamy soup. Place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours to chill before serving.  Top with white chia seeds, bee pollen or raw shelled hempseeds for an additional superfood punch!
