"This is a delicious cold soup and makes a quick summer meal with the addition of a loaf of sourdough bread. This soup has a distinctive flavor to it that you will love - somewhere between guacamole and gazpacho." — DCOX101

This was good, but I tweaked it quite a bit. I didn't use tomato juice or yogurt; instead, I blended two very large beefsteak tomatoes (for a total of 3). I omitted the onion, and I added raw corn cut from the cob for some texture and a little sweetness. I also chopped a third avocado and stirred it in. I blended in about 1/3 cup of cilantro, added 1 tsp of sea salt, and added a sprinkle of cumin to each bowl. I may add garlic next time. A note about the flavor: With 32 oz of tomato juice, this is not going to taste like avocado. The avocado is used only to add a creamy texture. This soup has a nice flavor, but if you're looking for an avocado-flavored soup, this isn't it.
You could not taste the avocado at all and the green pepper was very overpowering.
An excellent cold soup. I doubled the recipe, used very large avocados, added 1/2 cup more tomato juice, and served 11 people nicely.
This was good and very refreshing. The soup is definitely more tomato than avocado. Would be delicious with real sour cream (of course). I also wonder if it would be better with lime juice instead of lemon juice.
Gives a new twist to gazpacho and a very tasty, good recipe. I let everyone add their own cayenne as I do not like spicy foods.
I made this just as written except that I only used 6 oz of yogurt. It turned out great, although visually it was very unappealing, as another reviewer mentioned. I really enjoyed the flavor, however.
I thought this soup was very tasty, and my family enjoyed it as well! It was a great idea for lunch on a hot day (we had mexican blt sandwiches as well). I did saute the onion and the bell pepper just a tad before adding them to the soup because my family would not have enjoyed it as much if those ingredients were too overpowering. I also seasoned it with a little black pepper (in addition to the cayenne), and I only used 2.5 cups (20 oz) of vegetable juice instead of a quart of tomato juice. I really wanted to taste the avocado because I was using some nice ripe ones. I processed it in a food processor and then put it in a blender to make it smoother, and I really don't think it looked unappealing at all. It has a similar texture and color to many bisque-like soups. Once it was garnished, it actually looked quite pleasant, and it turned out to be tasty as well. This recipe may not fit everyone's personal taste, but it is certainly worth a try! I will definitely make it again! :) Thanks for submitting it!
I really disliked this soup; the taste of onion and tomato juice totally overpowered the avocado. Tasted like acidic salsa.
