TheBlenderGirl.com > Avocado Gazpacho
This easy raw gazpacho is like liquid guacamole. This blend kicked me into a pleasure-induced coma and had me ready to coat-check my teeth. I'm now dreaming up a recipe for a taco in a glass. Hmmm...
Tweak the onion, lime juice, chile, and salt to taste. I serve this soup as a main meal with lots of veggie toppings. This way, it serves about 4 people. But, this blend is also sensational served in shot glasses for parties. A splash of tabasco is magic, too.
Just use avocados that are ripe with no bruising or brown spots to avoid avo flavor funk.
- 2 cups (240ml) filtered water
- 2 medium avocados, peeled and pitted
- 2 cups diced English cucumber
