This recipe was prepared using Braun's Multiquick 7 Hand Blender and its 1.5-cup chopper and food processor attachments.



  • 2 green onions
  • 1 fresh green chili, seeds removed or if you prefer very spicy, leave them in
  • 1 avocado, sliced in half, seed and skin removed
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • ¾ cup plain low fat yogurt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • A few sprigs of fresh cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime, about 2  tablespoons
  • A few drops of tabasco sauce, optional
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper, optional
  • Sea salt, to taste

Spice mix:

  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 6 black peppercorns
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  1. Chop the green onions in the Braun MultiQuick food processor attachment together with the chili. Add the avocado and blend.
  2. Then add the chicken broth, yogurt, milk, cilantro, lime juice, tabasco and a pinch of cayenne pepper, if using in the food processor with the avocado mixture. Blend to a smooth purée. Season with sea salt.
  3. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  4. While soup is chilling make the spice mix. Lightly toast the cumin and coriander seeds in a small pan on the stovetop. Stir in chili powder. Transfer spice to the bowl of the Braun MultiQuick 1.5-cup chopper attachment. Add the oregano and garlic powder and blend until spices are finely ground. Transfer to a small bowl.
  5. Pour the cooled soup into bowls, sprinkle with the spice mix and serve immediately.

(Note: if there’s leftover spice mix, add some salt and pepper and use as a dry rub for your favorite meat, chicken or fish.)
