  • 1  avocado
  • 3/4 cup(s) buttermilk ( I use a vegan substitute with Almond Milk and Vinegar)

  • 1/4 cup(s) scallions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoon(s) scallions, chopped

  1. Make the soup: Combine the avocado, 1/2 cup buttermilk, chicken broth, 2 tablespoons scallions, and garlic in a blender and process until very smooth. Transfer the soup to a large bowl and, while stirring, add the rest of the buttermilk, water, lime juice, salt, and cayenne. Divide among 4 bowls and serve immediately or chill for up to eight hours. Garnish with 1 tablespoon each of radish and scallion.
