5-Minute Grain-free & Dairy-free Chilled Cucumber, Avocado & Cilantro Soup

5-Minute Grain-free Chilled Cucumber & Avocado Soup

It's hot out, y'all. If you are sick of forking at a salad, try this oh so smooth...grain-free and dairy-free Chilled Cucumber, Avocado & Cilantro Soup. Top with some bacon, onion and mango as you please. This takes all of five minutes to prepare in a blender. (Optional bacon and onion topping may add few more minutes on stovetop.)

 

INGREDIENTS FOR SOUP:

- Two large cucumbers

- The flesh of two ripe avocados

- Half a cup of cilantro 

- Juice of one lemon

- Juice of one lime

- One clove of garlic (or just cheat with a couple of dashes of garlic powder)

- Cayenne pepper to taste (some like it hot)

- One tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

- Sea salt (to taste)

 

INGREDIENTS FOR TOPPING:

- Half a cup of sautéed red onion

- Half a cup of finely chopped mango

- Third of a cup of cilantro

- Crispy bacon (two crumbled strips per bowl, or as much as you please)

 

DIRECTIONS:

In a blender, add cucumbers a few slices at a time until all blended. Then add remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. If you need to serve ASAP, cheat my adding a couple of cubes of ice. I suggest cooling in the refrigerator.

In a pan, fry that bacon. Set aside and cool. Use a little of the bacon grease to sauté your chopped onions. 

Crumble bacon in a bowl and mix in onions, cilantro and mango. After you have pored soup into bowls, garnish with this delicious mixture. (You just can't go wrong with bacon.)

(SERVES 4 small bowls or two large bowls. APPROX. 450 CALORIES FOR BIG BOWL WITH BACON.)
