Creamy asparagus avocado soup recipe
I love avocados and I love asparagus, so it was easy to put them together. This healthy asparagus soup recipe is so quick and easy to make. The asparagus roasts for about 10 minutes in the oven---or you can roast the asparagus in the air fryer if you don't want to turn on the oven!
Pro tip: you can cook even more in your air fryer with these air fryer accessories. Don't have an air fryer yet? Read my air fryer comparison to see which size and model are best for you.
Then add the roasted asparagus to a Vitamix or high-power blender with the avocado, lemon juice, and stock. This avocado soup contains no cream, milk, or sour cream. Avocado is one of my favorite substitutes for fresh dairy and it works beautifully in this paleo asparagus soup. Blending the avocado into the soup thickens it and makes it smooth and creamy.
The wonderful creaminess of the avocado is accentuated by the brightness of the lemon and the caramelization from the quick-roasted asparagus. The ghee adds a buttery flavor, but you could certainly leave it out or substitute olive oil if you wanted to go completely dairy-free. And you could always use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock to make this asparagus soup vegan.
This creamy asparagus avocado soup recipe makes me think of spring and is a perfect treat on a late winter day. Try it with a simple chicken salad for a perfect lunch!

This looks awesome and it includes a couple of my favorite veggies: asparagus and avocado. And a soup, which seems hearty enough for winter. I will see if I can make this during this upcoming week. Thanks for creating this.
They are some of my favorite veggies as well. Hope you enjoy it!
I know it sounds like a stupid question but how much is one serving? This is absolutely delicious by the way 🙂
Kelly, I'm so glad you liked the soup! Great question - a serving size is 6-8 ounces for an appetizer or 10-12 ounces for a main course. I've updated this in the recipe. Thanks!
I've made this twice in the last month and it's delicious!
How long can this be stored in the refrigerator?
Unfortunately, my blender wasn't powerful enough, and my soup is sorta chewy...but it tastes good! 😉

Rich, thick and creamy soup to look at. I know once i taste it , I always wanting for it!
Could this be frozen then reheated at a later time?
I haven't tried freezing this one. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
Outstanding not only for nutrition and taste but also love replacing carb laden thickeners with pureed avocado, and will carry that little tidbit onto my other soupy endeavors. Thank you so much Ms. Wells!
You're welcome Dennis - I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
