It’s May, and temperatures are rising. Summer is approaching. May is my favorite month of the year, because the weather is just so great, everything is beautiful, and well, yes, there’s a selfish reason too, it’s my birthday month 😉
Some mornings still feel a little chilly, but during the day it is pretty warm over here in the beautiful Baja peninsula in Mexico, and for such warm days it is OK not to spend much time cooking and make a cold, refreshing meal, perhaps a vegan avocado soup.
I am a huge fan of cold soups. I have shared an article about cold soups before, but I have not shared my all-time favorite recipe yet: cold, creamy avocado spinach soup.
It tastes delicious, it’s full of rich flavors, and it is also a great energy bomb. Ingredients are few and easy on the wallet. Depending on the country you live in, avocados may be pricey in some places, but they provide a healthy dose of vitamins. So, it’s worth the investment.
I can never pass up on an avocado. Guacamole, sliced avocados, avocado on toast, in a taco, grilled avocado, dips; I’ll gobble it all up. In fact, I planted some avocado trees on my land, two different kinds. They are still small, but they are growing nicely.
So, let’s not dillydally any longer. Here comes my cold avocado soup. 🙂
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1-2 garlic cloves (depending on your taste buds)
- 3-4 sliced spring onions
- ¼ cup nutritional yeast
- 1 cup hot water
- 2 tablespoons tamarind sauce
- Salt and pepper to taste
- A handful of spinach leaves
- Half a handful of fresh basil
- 5 black, seedless olives
Note: the nutritional yeast will give it a yummy cheesy flavor and it will provide you with an extra batch of vitamins, including vitamin B12.
- Throw it all in the blender and blend away until the mixture is smooth. Taste to see if you want to add any other spices. Serve immediately or store in the fridge to enjoy later.
- To serve, you may sprinkle some hemp seeds on top or add some fresh basil leaves or perhaps sliced olives. It is up to you.

I absolutely love this soup. It is one of my favorites. Besides its great taste, it is a true energy bomb. The first time I had it, I felt so incredibly energized. I just kept on going like the Duracell bunny, lol.
Especially now, we need to stay healthy, keep our immune systems up; and soups like these are an excellent way to do just that, without spending an arm and a leg on the ingredients.
Bonus: making this soup takes you less than five minutes! Talk about time management. 😉
I hope that you enjoyed this post and that you will try out this flavorful recipe. When you do, let me know how you liked it or if you made any changes in the recipe. Sometimes it is OK to add or change things. Make sure, though, to include nutritional yeast. It is a delightfully tasty condiment.
If you have any questions or if you have any other recipes for plant-based cold soups, let me know in the comments.

This looks like such a delicious recipe! I always try to find something unique, so I won’t have to prepare the same dishes all the time. This is right up my alley, as I totally love avocado and have a tendency to put it on everything. I also love spinach, so this is a really great pairing for someone like me. Thanks for sharing!
Awesome! Then you will love this recipe 🙂 Enjoy!
This soup looks awesome! I LOVE soup and avocados so this recipe seems like the perfect mix. I also absolutely hate eating soup when it’s hot out so I think this is the perfect recipe to try now that it’s warming up (I’m in Florida so it’s warming up FAST! lol). I’m loving the fact that it only takes 5 minutes to make too. Sounds like a great option after a long day at work.
Does this make one bowl or can it serve more than one person? I’m going to make this for my partner and myself but want to make sure I don’t make too much or too little!
Thanks for sharing and I hope you enjoy your birthday!
This recipe is great for two people. Florida must be getting warmer now, I can imagine. This recipe is just perfect for days likes these 😉
Enjoy your avocado soup!
First, I want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Enjoy your month! I hope you manage to have fun during these difficult times. Also, thank you for this new recipe. It is true that cold food or soups are the best! At least for me.
These days, I’ve been interested to try more healthy food, therefore, I am always searching for vegan recipes. That’s why I am happy to find your website. This vegan avocado recipe seems delicious and I want to try it tomorrow with my flatmates. Also, since I am not a vegan I was wondering if it fine to add other ingredients such as cheese, you mentioned that the nutritional yeast will give it a yummy cheesy flavor. So, I am not sure if adding Cheese will be fine!
Again, thank you for this amazing recipe! 😀
Yes, I think it would be fine to add cheese; parmesan cheese should also add nice flavor.
Enjoy the soup!
Thanks for the birthday wishes! My birthday will be at the end of this month 😉
Thanks for the vegan resources on your site and especially for interesting and innovative recipe ideas like this. Looks like a dish that would be a crowd-pleaser, but it’s been challenging to find yeast (one of the ingredients) products lately in my local area. Do you have any favorite online sources that would be somewhere I could purchase the ingredients I can’t find in my (smallish) local area?
I understand, some things may be hard to come by nowadays. It is best to order nutritional yeast on Amazon. You can click here to get it 🙂
This soup is certainly a crowd pleaser, very delicious. I hope you can get all the ingredients, so that you can make this soon 🙂
Have a great weekend!
