Chilled Avocado Soup

As we head into summer and can find avocados at the store right now, I thought I would post this easy soup.  It's really great in your VitaMix blender.  We love ours!

Serves 4

2 avocados, peeled and seeded
1 cup broth
2 Tbs lime juice
6 Tbs sour cream
6 Tbs heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
Chopped shallots

Put all the ingredients in the blender and blend until desired smoothness.

Chill for several hours and serve.

* Add a  little jalapeno to the mix.
* Top with salsa.
* Top with crumbled Queso Fresca.

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date . . . .
