Cool, creamy and velvety on the tongue, our chilled avocado soup refreshes with a satisfying tanginess from our Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Kefir…even on the hottest summer days.

This very pale caramel frosting is a bit sticky, but it has an exquisite flavor! Of course we prefer it made with Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Kefir but you can substitute buttermilk as well. Delicious on Fruit and Spice Cake.
By Chef John Ash
This recipe is by Sonoma County Chef John Ash, who has developed many recipes for Redwood Hill Farm. Originally this recipe called for buttermilk. Kefir is an excellent substitute in any recipe calling for milk, buttermilk or yogurt. Kefir is excellent as a base for soups, dips and sauces.
This is a quick, and simple soup. It is a wonderful base to which you can add all manner of things including cooked shrimp, sauteed mushrooms, spring peas, etc. I often will drizzle on a little fragrant nut oil as a garnish. Serve the soup chilled or at room temperature. We do not always think about room temperature soups but it is a nice variation on a warm day. Serves 4
