This is a really easy soup that comes together very quickly in the blender. It can be served in bowls or even in cute, smaller little cups and sipped as an appetizer or amuse-bouche.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 ½ cups avocado from about 2 large
  • 2 cups English cucumber chopped
  • 3 large garlic cloves
  • ½ cup red onion diced
  • 2 ½ Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

Instructions
 

  • Add water, avocado, cucumber, garlic, red onion, lime juice, vinegar, oil, sriracha, salt, and ice to a high-speed blender. Puree.
  • Add more salt, sriracha, lime juice or vinegar to taste. I added an extra tsp of sriracha but it depends on how much heat you want. If you'd like the soup colder, add a couple more ice cubes. Blend.
  • Pour into bowls and add desired topping options.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Can also be frozen.
