Avocados are an excellent source of healthy omega-3 fats and a wide range of phytonutrients. They help with blood sugar control, insulin regulation, satiety, weight management, and inflammation. Include collagen peptides to provide a clean source of amino acids and complement this fiber-rich and nutrient-packed cold soup.
