I love this Cucumber Avocado Cilantro concoction! It’s great as a smoothie for breakfast, or a chilled soup for dinner, or a simple snack anytime.

Makes 3 cups

Ingredients

2 cups Cilantro Garlic Broth
1/2 hothouse cucumber, sliced into rounds about 1/4-inch thick
1/2 cup plain (full fat) yogurt
1/2 ripe avocado
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/8 teaspoon salt

Steps

Put all of the ingredients into a blender and blend to desired consistency. Serve chilled! 

Ingredient Notes

Cucumber – I prefer use the long hothouse cucumber as it’s not waxed, has a thin skin, and is seedless.  If you use a regular cucumber, you may need to peel it if it’s waxed and remove some of the seeds, if numerous and large.

Yogurt – I especially like the Seven Stars Farm Organic Yogurt (full fat) Original Plain. Of course, there are other quality yogurts to choose from. Or you could make your own!

Salt – I like the flavor of Celtic Sea Salt and used the fine ground version for this recipe.

Enjoy and be healthy!
