It’s no secret that I love avocados and green tea! I’ve been whipping up a post workout green tea and chilled avocado soup on a pretty regular basis and wanted to share this super easy recipe with you to try as well. The mint in my usual green tea adds an extra kick of energy for me, and I love anything avocado so this soup is awesome served hot or chilled. I can put this together in about 5 minutes or less so it’s definitely a quick meal for when you want replenish and get a solid dose of antioxidants and vitamins.
I’ll start off by making some iced Lipton Matcha Green Tea with Mint. I usually prefer tea iced (and especially after a workout I like something refreshing) so will steep my tea bags in a smaller amount of hot water to activate the tea, and then toss in a bunch of ice once steeped to cool it down. I picked up this Lipton Matcha Green Tea with Mint during a recent Safeway trip and had to try it out. We’ve been growing organic mint in the window sill and I’ve been throwing it into everything! I’ll also use a classic Lipton tea bag too if I want an extra boost of energy. This recipe was my inspo for this easy tea.
REFRESHING AVOCADO SOUP
While my tea is steeping I’ll start prepping my avocado soup. It’s a very easy recipe so I eyeball all of the ingredients. If I’m making just one serving for myself, I’ll scoop one avocado into a small blender, add about one cup vegetable or chicken broth, add a handful of sliced cucumber, and a few mint leaves (why not, it’s here in the kitchen!). You can add salt and pepper if you’d like but I find that the broth gives it a perfect amount of seasoning.
Blend everything together until smooth! If you’re using hot broth, make sure you blend safely with a towel over the blender to avoid any hot liquid splashes.
I actually best prefer this avocado soup chilled so I’ll use room temperature broth and then pop it in the refrigerator to chill. It’s also amazing hot on a cold day!
Serve your avocado soup up in a bowl alongside your minty-matcha goodness tea from Lipton and you have one of my favorite post-workout meals that is delicious, vitamin packed, and so good!
