Avocado Cucumber Gazpacho

 

Avocado Cucumber Gazpacho

I am all about recipes with avocados these days -- they're incredibly nutritious, high in potassium, low in sugar, loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and fiber, and all over local supermarkets in the summer. With the weather getting hotter I like my soup colder, like gazpacho, which is traditionally made with tomatoes, but I changed this Spanish-style soup to include avocados and cucumbers instead. With just five main ingredients and ready in under five minutes, this recipe could not be easier to make, PLUS it’s Keto-friendly! (For picnics and road trips, I pack this one in a cool thermos and it’s good for about 3-4 hours.)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 medium avocado (peeled and pitted)
  • 1 cucumber (skin on and roughly chopped)

  • Sea salt (to taste)
