One-Pot Wonders

Chilled Avocado and Cucumber Soup

Author Notes

This is a refreshing and filling soup. It is packed with protein and can easily be adjusted to be dairy-free. If the soup needs to be served immediately and there is no time to chill, add a few pieces of crushed ice. Add 1/4 teaspoon of ground coriander if you would like a sweet note to the soup. If you desire more protein, the soup is delicious topped with a diced boiled egg or a side of spicy grilled shrimp. —A Pleasant Little Kitchen

Test Kitchen Notes

This perfect summer soup is so simple and easy to throw together in a pinch. I used to be a gazpacho girl, but this is now my new favorite chilled soup. It’s full of healthy fats from the coconut milk and avocado, so it’s really satisfying. The cucumber and yogurt make the soup refreshing and light, while the avocado and coconut milk create a wonderful rich, creamy texture. I wouldn't change a thing! —Natalie
