If you love the creamy flavor of avocados and want something a little different from avocado toast, chef Gabriel Sanchez has a delicious late-summer treat for you. This chilled soup, which is especially refreshing on warm nights, brings island flavor to your bowl by blending avocados with orange juice and lemon juice to create a citrusy kick. Try it with a side of shrimp cocktail and some crusty bread.
