This recipe for Cold Cucumber And Avocado Soup reminds me of my mom. It is not Dave’s favourite, and so I reserve it to make for days he is not home. It is one of the recipes that I could make over and over again.

Yesterday, I posted a recipe for flour tortillas that I made to serve with a cold soup. I love cold soups and this is one of my favourites. With cucumber being so refreshing, it is perfect for hot summer days. Our summer is not over. This morning it was 22°C/71.6°F at 7am and I always have these ingredients in my fridge, so I know what I will be making for lunch today. It is one of those recipes that is super easy to make and perfect for when you want a quick meal. As I said, this is not Dave’s favourite so I tend to make the soup for myself when I am home alone. This means going home for lunch during the working week, which I really don’t mind doing when it is so hot. Work is impossible in the heat as I cannot concentrate. We do not have air conditioning in our office and the sun streams in through the windows. My desk faces the sun so you can imagine just how hot it is.

Our summer is on the verge of starting, so I think I need to bookmark this for when things really heat up!
And I know, your summers get very hot!
My favourite Summer soup, Tandy. 😉
Do you do it the same way AD?
Not with the avo, but it sounds wonderful that way.

I love cucumbers and I love avocados.. so I guess this pairing is brilliant for me :). I love it. Thanks for posting this. I think I will give it a try
let me know what you think 🙂
This looks wonderful! Another month and I’ll need it here.
I’m sure by now you are longing for summer 🙂
Tandy, I haven’t had a creamy cold soup for a decade! But I can still remember how wonderfully decadent they were – and your cucumber and avocado version sounds like a perfect summer treat!
it is a favourite of mine, and I made another cold soup yesterday as it is so hot here 🙂
This sounds like a lovely and refreshing soup for this summer. Thanks Tandy.
My pleasure Karen 🙂
This sounds so clean and refreshing! I definitely want to give it a try once it’s more summery around here.
I am sure you will love it 🙂
Lovely recipe and will make a lovely change for us from gazpacho! Funnily enough we have avocadoes pretty much year round as they are grown down on the coast but the tasty cucumbers will be a month or so yet…
I wish we had avo’s all year that were cheap. Out of season they are ridiculously expensive but I buy pulp and I even have some frozen for ‘in case’ 🙂
