Raw Avocado Gazpacho Recipe

A tasty raw avocado gazpacho recipe can be made using buttery organic avocados for a nice change.

A traditional gazpacho soup is usually red in color and made with ripe tomatoes along with other fresh ingredients. 

However, an avocado gazpacho recipe will be green in color - but still with a focus on really fresh ingredients.

Gazpacho is a refreshing chilled soup that a lot of people crave during the hot summer months. 

However, I think avocado gazpacho recipes should be eaten all year round - as long as you can find really great tasting avocados.

How to Choose a Ripe Avocado

Even though I'm from Hawaii, where there are a ton of avocado trees - I still have trouble choosing a good avocado.  Especially in the states where avocados are not naturally grown.

Basically, you can tell when an avocado is ripe, when its hard skin gives slightly when squeezed. 

Unfortunately, most avocados will have to be ripened at home to get the perfect ripe avocado.

Every time I buy what I thought was a perfectly ripe avocado at the grocery store, it turns out to be an overripe avocado by the time I use it in a recipe.

So learning a trick or two on how to ripen an avocado will help so many to make a successful and tasty avocado gazpacho recipe.

Trick to Ripen An Avocado

I learned this trick in Hawaii and I used a banana to help ripen my avocado.

Place an unripe avocado or avocados in a brown paper bag - along with a tomato, apple, or banana (this quickens the ripening process).

The unripe avocado or avocados should ripen in a day to 3 days. 

Then you can store your ripe avocado in the refrigerator to extend the life of your ripened avocado for a day or two longer.
