Avocado and Tomatillo Soup (Gluten-Free)

This version of a cold Mexican soup will refresh both your palate and your culinary repertoire. It makes great base, and holds up nicely to other flavors. Adding roasted chili or jalapeño peppers or cherry tomatoes gives it a surprising bite. For a more rustic texture, omit the blender altogether. Dice the tomatillos into small chunks, and work the avocados well with a wooden spoon or fork. This soup makes wonderful meal on a warm day.

Ingredients:
3 ripe avocados
5 ripe tomatillos
3 cups chicken stock
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
2 gloves garlic, chopped
1 ½ cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

You could sub out the heavy cream by using a low fat milk and adding some butter. Or ?
