Beat the heat and get a full serving of veggies by making this Creamy Green Avocado Gazpacho! This oil-free refreshing chilled soup is creamy, savory, & is a part of a raw vegan diet. Just throw these fresh ingredients in a blender, blend, & enjoy this refreshing soup!

I am a big fan of eating soup all year around. However, when the temperatures are hitting 90ºF or higher, I might not be in the mood for a piping hot soup. This creamy gazpacho does the trick! Since it is a chilled soup, you won't need to worry about turning on the stove or the oven!


This soup is full of nutrients and hydration, as well as tons of flavor. It also couldn't be easier. Just roughly chop up all of the veggies, then toss them in a blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Let it chill for a few minutes, and you're done!

What You Need For This Recipe

Ingredients and Substitutions:

  • English Cucumber - 1 long English cucumber should do the trick! English cucumbers are usually thinner and firmer, but a regular cucumber will work here as well.
  • Avocado - Fresh and ripe, make sure it hasn't turned brown.
  • Raw Peas - I suggest using raw, uncooked peas instead of frozen peas.
  • Jalapeño - De-seeded and de-stemmed (unless you want alllll the spice)! Increase the amount used if you prefer a spicy gazpacho.
  • Chives, Dill, Cilantro - Using fresh herbs will give this recipe the best flavor!
  • Garlic Clove
  • Lemon Juice
  • Water
  • Salt

How to Make This Recipe

Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients

Step 2: Blend!

Blend all of the ingredients until creamy and smooth, at least 30 seconds.

Taste and adjust level of salt if necessary.


If the gazpacho seems too thick, feel free to add a small amount of extra water.


Step 3: Finishing Touches

Once blended, put the gazpacho in the fridge for 10-15 minutes, or until chilled through.


Pour the gazpacho into bowls and garnish with more cilantro or chives or dill!

Expert Tips

  • Use fresh ingredients! The fresh herbs, avocado, lemon juice, and veggies will increase the flavor profile as well as the vibrant green color. It will also be more refreshing when using fresh ingredients.
  • A high-powered blender will give you the best results. While any blender will work, if you can obtain a high-powered one, it will make the soup creamier and smoother. A lower powered blender may need a bit more blending time or a bit more liquid.
  • If you still want a little spicy kick in your chilled soup, increase the jalapeño amount or leave the seeds in! I trust that you know yourself and how much heat you can handle. The recipe as it stands is not spicy at all.
