Summer days are still here, and with it the need for cooling foods that are super easy to prepare. Let me introduce you to my newest obsession: this creamy, chilled cucumber avocado soup. It's sooooo good. The texture is dreamy, exactly what you would expect from a creamy soup. The flavor is subtle yet delicious. And it fills you up without making you feel heavy and extremely full, so that you can be light on your feet this summer, and return to fun in the sun. You can prepare this ahead of time, and keep it in the fridge to chill further.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Makes 1 main or 2 side servings:
For the soup:
5 mint leaves
2 small-medium sized avocados
1 spring onion
1/2 big cucumber
1/2 cup of cold water
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbsp cilantro
1 tsp sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
black sesame, chili flakes, cilantro, spring onion, or whatever else you desire
Blend all the soup ingredients in a blender on high for at least 1 minute until super creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle with garnish and serve, or chill further in the fridge.
