Recipe Ingredients for Cold Avocado Soup

1 cucumber
1 avocado
2 green onions
1/4 cup of fresh mint
1 1/2 cups of water
1/2 cup fat-free yogurt

Recipe Directions for Cold Avocado Soup

  1. Start by chopping 2/3 of the cucumber into chunks, and dice the remaining 1/3 cucumber.

  2. The chunks are going to be put in the blender and the diced cucumber is for the garnish.

  3. The remaining ingredients just need to be chopped up a bit before they get added to the blender.

  4. If you are unsure how to cut avocados check out my blog on Avocados.

  5. Measure 1/2 cup of buttermilk (or yogurt) and 1 1/2 cups of cold water.

  6. Add the water and buttermilk to the blender.

  7. Start by blending everything on a low speed at first, then increase it just a bit. Everything needs to get totally chopped up and then made really smooth. This will take about 2 minutes of blending.

  8. You can chill this soup for up to 3 hours before serving, and then garnish it with the diced cucumbers just before serving.

  9. This soup is a beautiful color and the cucumbers add a wonderful crunch!
