Chilled Cucumber and Avocado Soup

Chilled Cucumber and Avocado Soup

Serves 6
Cool, crisp cucumbers blend nicely with soy milk, creamy yogurt, vibrant avocados and tangy lime juice. Served in chilled bowls, this dairy-free summertime soup is a delightfully refreshing antidote to a warm evening. Use Haas avocados for the creamiest texture and vine-ripened tomatoes for just a hint of sweetness.
  • 1 large English cucumber, peeled and diced (about 3 cups)
  • 2 1/4 cup plain unsweetened soy milk

Combine cucumber, soy milk, 3/4 cup yogurt and lime juice in a blender. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Add half of the avocado, half of the onion, and half of the basil, and blend until very smooth, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a non-metallic bowl and season with salt and pepper. Cover and refigerate for at least 2 hours.

In a small bowl, combine the tomato and lime juice with the remaining avocado, onion, and basil. 

Ladle soup into six chilled bowls. Dollop each with a tablespoon of yogurt and garnish with tomato mixture.
