SO MUCH GOODNESS IN ONE BOWL

cucumber soup

The temperature are rising
no one want to hassle
in the kitchen.
So creating cold
soup to bring your
body temperature down
and is satisfying why not try
a cold cucumber and avocado soup.
So Much Goodness In One Bowl
you will not mind keeping this
as a recipe keeper for the summer
events or for a night no need to 
cook it is healthy and economical
not to much ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

1 Cucumber dice
1 lemon zest
3 Tablespoon of  lemon juice
1/4 cup of water
1 Avocado half for soup the other half for garnish
1 garlic clove (optional)
1 cup of Greek yogurt
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste

TIP
1 Cucumber split in the middle
with a plastic spoon
scoop out the seed

ADD ALL INGREDIENTS IN 
FOOD PROCESSOR OR BLENDER.

BLEND UNTIL SMOOTH
LIKE THIS

GARNISH WITH THE OTHER HALF OF AVOCADO
I LIKE TO DRIZZLE IT WITH GRAPE SEED OIL

FINAL RESULT

 ALWAYS BEAUTIFY YOUR
PLATE AND HEALTH

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The soup is bland so if you like to kick it
up more increase the intake of salt or
lemon if you prefer lime you could do so.
You also could use Tarragon herb if you
do not like Parsley I had done it with both
taste delicious.
If you like to add spice to it drizzle
with hot sauce to serve.

  6. Again, this looks like such a healthy piece. No wonder you have your figure, Jackie! I know I'm doing my FunFitFab series but I am such a child at heart and there is no way I can get myself to eat something as healthy as this. Avocado? No thank you! But you definitely keep going with your healthy diet. I'm jealous inside. Hope you're enjoying your week. Rosemary x
