Chilled Avocado Cucumber Soup

Serves 4

This is a refreshing and filling soup. It is packed with protein and can easily be adjusted to be dairy free. If the soup needs to be served immediately and there is not time to chill, add a few pieces of crushed ice. Add a 1/4 teaspoon of ground coriander if you would like a sweet note to the soup. If you desire to add more protein to the soup, it is delicious with a side of grilled or roasted shrimp. If you’re serving a crowd, this recipe is easily doubled.

2 avocados

1 English cucumber, peeled, seeds removed and rough chopped

1/4 red onion, rough chopped

1 garlic clove, peeled and halved

3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk

3/4 cup plain yogurt

1/4 cup packed cilantro

1 cup water

juice of 1 lime

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon cayenne (optional)

1 1/4 teaspoon salt

chopped cilantro, for topping

lime wedges, for topping

In a food processor or blender, add the avocados, cucumber, onion, garlic, coconut milk, yogurt, cilantro, water, lime juice, cumin, optional cayenne and salt. Blitz until smooth.

Store in the fridge until chilled. Serve cold, topped with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
