Skinny on Chilled Avocado Cucumber Soup
Try something new this summer – Chilled Avocado Cucumber Soup.
Buttery avocados and cool cucumbers blend together to make a fantastic, diabetic-friendly, Weight Watchers friendly cold soup.
The smooth texture of avocado gives this chilled soup a thick and creamy consistency, making heavy or sour cream unnecessary.
This version is simple and straightforward, seasoned with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
For a zestier soup, add your favorite seasonings to taste. Garlic, anchovies, fresh herbs (parsley, basil, dill, cilantro, mint tarragon), scallion, chopped jalapeño are all flavorful possibilities.
Cold soups make a refreshing lunch or light supper when served with a salad, sandwich or crusty or toasted bread.
According to my calculations, each serving has 99 calories, *3 Weight Watchers PointsPlus and *4 Weight Watchers SmartPoints.
