Cool and creamy, soups are a great way to start a meal, but are also awesome as a meal. You can easily double or triple my recipe and have delicious leftovers. The beauty of my veggie-rich recipe is that its high water and fiber content slows how fast you eat and fills you up quicker.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 cucumber
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 2 cups filtered ice water
- 1 1/4 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 lime, juice only
- OPTIONAL TOPPINGS
- Chopped tomatoes
- Fresh chopped chives
- Cucumber slices
Refrigerate all the ingredients overnight. Peel and seed the avocado and peel the cucumber and garlic.
Place all the cold ingredients in a Vitamix and process until smooth.
The colder the ingredients are, the less foam there will be. Serve cold and top with chopped tomatoes for a bright pop of flavor.
