On a hot day there is nothing better than cold delectable soup to refresh the palate. Given my love of mango and avocado this gazpacho is one of my most beloved soups.
Delectable Mango-Avocado Gazpacho
2 cups diced fresh mangoes
2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice, plus 5 drops of wild orange essential oil
1 cup chopped cucumber, peeled and seeded
1 small bell pepper (whatever color you’d like) seeded and chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 small serano chili pepper, seeded and minced (optional)
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus 3 drops of lime essential oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (basil or mint are good as well)
1 – 2 tablespoons cold pressed organic extra-virgin olive oil
Himalayan sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
red onion, chopped, for garnish
avocado, sliced, for garnish
If you want the soup to be chunkier, reserve a bit of the mango, cucumber, red pepper, and cilantro to use as the final garnish. Process the remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
When ready pour into bowls and garnish the soup.
