Chilled Cucumber Avocado Soup

It’s official. Bikini season is already here.

I tried my best to take advantage of the beautiful weather here in Austin today so I decided I would take a nice walk through the Greenbelt. Thanks to the lovely rain we’ve had the past couple of days there was actually water in the river, which of course, meant swimmers. And it hit me. I’m not ready for this. This past winter was too long, too cold, I haven’t prepared nearly enough!

And so this soup was born.


If you can’t tell from it’s bright green glow, this soup is seriously healthy for you. With cucumbers and avocados making up the base, it’ll make you glow just as well.

Enjoy!
