Delectable Mango-Avocado Gazpacho.

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 red, orange, or yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 small jicama, diced
  • 1 small serrano chili pepper, seeded and minced
  • 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
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Himalayan sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • red onion, chopped, for garnish
  • avocado, sliced, for garnish
  • 3 drops of cilantro essential oil

Puree all ingredients together in a Vitamix or a blender. If you want chunkier soup, you can leave some of the chopped mango, cucumber, jicama, peppers, etc aside and place into the soup along with the garnish.
