RECIPE: 5-Step Fresh Cucumber Soup 💚
One of the healthiest foods in the world! Cucumber is a fruit with almost no sugar! So fresh and delicious. It’s packed with minerals and has magical hydrating power. Let’s celebrate freshness with cucumber and feel light and bright ☀️

Detox Cucumber Soup

We need a blender for this one. But if you don’t have a blender, chopped herbs, cucumber, avocado and minced garlic with fresh lime juice and a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste may become one of your favorite salads or refreshing sides. The blended soup has creaminess, though...  hard to beat that. Choose super fresh and, if possible, organic ingredients. It’s important because we are becoming one with the food we eat.

You will need:

Chopped Cucumber (Japanese cucumbers preferred) - 2 cups Whole Garlic - 1 clove Chopped Dill - 1 cup Fresh Lime squeezed - 1 Avocado for the blend - 1/2 Sea Salt (Pink Himalayan Salt) - 1/4 tsp You may want to replace or add some ingredients. For example you can use sea salt instead of pink salt, or olive oil instead of ghee.  Do you like spice? You may feel like adding fresh jalapeños, cayenne pepper or crushed red chiles -- it's 100% up to you and your taste buds!


1 - Dice one cucumber and 1/2 avocado to add to blender 2 - Blend all into an amazing creaminess and put in a big bowl. 3 - Dice 1 cucumber and 1/2 avocado into small cubes and toss it in the tender green creaminess. 4 - Add your favorite extras! Experiment to add hints of different flavors. For example, you can add rosemary to the blend, decorate with basil leaves, try it with cilantro, use lemon juice instead of lime, replace avocado with pine nuts or just sprinkle them over the soup in the bowl. 5 - Use black, red, cayenne or any other pepper you like to finish off the dish - they are all great!

How to serve?

So many options! Serve with: ♥ sliced avocado, tomato and red onion; ♥ a side of green salad; or ♥ sliced fresh cucumber. Enjoy!
