Dinner Tonight: Avocado Cucumber Soup

Spread the love

This recipe is perfect for these super hot days when all you feel like doing is sitting in front of a fan and drinking ice cold water. The crisp clean flavors of the cucumber and cilantro provide a nice balance to richness of the avocados.

It is super easy to make and very refreshing… and because it is made with avocados, it is very healthy. Avocados are a source of carotenoids, especially lutein, as well as folate

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and cubed
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and cubed
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used organic 2% milk)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • pepper and salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

In a blender or food processor blend the first 5 ingredients, until smooth. Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper and as much vegetable broth as you want to make the desired consistency. Chill. And eat!
