Summer is here in Colorado, and as we’re heading into our Group Cleanse, we’re looking for quick, veggie-based meals that don’t heat up the house. When the temperature rises, we reach for refreshing, water-rich summer veggies like cucumbers, and this is the perfect recipe!
This soup is the ideal meal for a hot summer day. The avocado adds a creamy texture and the cucumber, lemon, and dill make the flavor light and refreshing. Pair it with a massaged kale salad and grilled chicken or salmon, top with hemp seeds or pumpkin seeds to make it a meal – or just enjoy it as is as a snack or a lighter lunch/dinner!
This recipe would also be great for purification! Purification weekends are an optional part of our online food-based cleanse program. Simply omit the avocado to follow purification guidelines, and you’re good to go.
Do you have a meal or food that immediately makes you think of summer? Let us know in the comments below! We always love to hear from our community.
