- 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/2 green onion, chopped
- Dash of cayenne
- 1 medium avocado
- 1/4 cup orange juice for a little sweeter soup
- 1/4 jalapeno for a hotter soup
In a high speed blender, blend all ingredients, except avocado until smooth. Add avocado and continue to blend to desired texture.
Be careful not to blend too much or the soup becomes foamy with extra air whipped into it and you'll have Creamy Green Mousse.
