This soup is great for two people but conveniently makes the perfect little cold appetizer soup for about 5 or 6. With plenty of options for garnishes- like fresh herbs or edible flowers, a swirl of coconut milk and ribbons of cucumber it looks like an impressive dish to serve guests (I mean, they don’t have to know that it only takes 10 minutes to throw it together right?)
I used avocado, and coconut milk as the base which makes is ultra creamy and rich. The grated ginger, green apple, jalapeno and cilantro provide a punch of flavour while the lime juice helps to bring them together. Really, this feels like a garden soup and if you grow your own food, it’s likely have a lot of these ingredients in your backyard right now. SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

3/4 cup water
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp grated ginger
1 ripe avocado, cored and peeled
1 small garden cucumber
1/2 a granny smith green apple, cored
2 cups greens (I like spinach and a young arugula that is not too bitter)
1 jalapeno, deseeded
1 cup packed fresh cilantro
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp lime zest
1 stalk green onion, roughly chopped
salt and cayenne pepper to taste
optional garnishes: swirl of olive oil or coconut milk, cilantro, edible flowers, cucumber ribbons, sliced avocado.
Place all of the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a jar and store in the fridge until chilled. (about 4 hours).

When picking a green to blend in, remember that the more bitter the green, the more bitter your soup will be! I like to stick with spinach or a baby arugula.
