This recipe is perfect for these super hot days when all you feel like doing is sitting in front of a fan and drinking ice cold water. The crisp clean flavors of the cucumber and cilantro provide a nice balance to richness of the avocados.
- 2 ripe avocados, peeled and cubed
- 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and cubed
- 3/4 cup milk (I used organic 2% milk)
- 2 tablespoons cilantro
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- pepper and salt to taste
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
In a blender or food processor blend the first 5 ingredients, until smooth. Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper and as much vegetable broth as you want to make the desired consistency. Chill. And eat!
