Cool off after a work out with a light refreshing meal! Avocado cucumber soup totally hits the spot!
During the summer months, we tend to eat a lot lighter and crave fresh tasting foods. One of my go to summer favorites is cold soup. What better way to cool off on a hot summer day than a cold soup. But cooling off is not just a summertime activity. After a good workout, a cool meal can be a refreshing reward! This gorgeous and velvety soup has no cream and no dairy, making it perfect for vegans. This soup is bursting with farm fresh flavors from the beautiful and gentle taste of the dill, parsley, and basil. The avocado and tahini add a richness to the soup while the cucumber adds hydration. The best part is that this recipe is insanely easy to make and only takes a few ingredients.
Cucumbers are made up of almost 95 percent of water. I love eating them because they keep me feeling hydrated and fresh. Cucumbers work wonders on oral health, as they are able to fight odor-causing bacteria in your mouth. They can also help in digestive health by raising our stomachs PH levels which tend to be very acidic most of the time. Cucumbers can also help maintain a healthy weight in the body as they contain only 16 calories per cup! They slow digestion in the body due to their fiber content, so it’s a great healthy snack which will keep you feeling full.
We add a touch of tahini to give this soup its extra “oomph” and flavor. Being rich in minerals and calcium, tahini has many great health benefits. Tahini is also rich in healthy fats contributing to healthy skin and glow.
This soup can be made the night before and placed in the fridge. It will keep around 2–3 days in an airtight container.
