Chilled Avocado & Cucumber Soup

The cool sensation of cucumber combined with the creaminess of avocado makes for a wonderfully refreshing soup. It’s full of flavor and can be served chilled or at room temperature.

Various ways to use this soup:

  • It would be great as a base for a guacamole dip. Adding cucumber in with the avocado is a great way to reduce some of the fat and calories of the traditional avocado mixture without losing any flavor, especially if you like to eat a lot of it!
  • Use it as a dip for veggies, chips, or as a spread on sandwiches.
  • It would make a fantastic salad dressing and would be great on raw spiralized noodles, like zucchini and carrots.

There are lots of ways to use this recipe with minor changes of the water amount, use less for a thicker base or more for a thinner base.

Enjoy this soup often, it’s perfect when the warmer weather sets in, making for a light lunch, dinner or make ahead meal!

How Long Will Leftovers Keep?

Leftovers will keep for 5 – 6 days in the refrigerator, stored in a covered container.

Can You Freeze Avocado Cucumber Soup?

Yes, it freezes beautifully for up to 2 months! My favorite way to freeze this soup is in individual small containers that are freezer safe. When ready to eat, just pull it from the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge or on the counter. You can also freeze larger portions in large freezer safe ziplock bags or containers.

Chilled Avocado & Cucumber Soup

The cool sensation of cucumber combined with the creaminess of avocado makes for a wonderfully refreshing cold soup. It’s light, refreshing and 100% raw!

  • Author: Julie | The Simple Veganista
  • Prep Time: 5 min
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 2
  • Category: Soup
  • Method: Puree
  • Cuisine: Raw Vegan

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1 large cucumber (regular or english), with or without the skin
  • 1 teaspoon cumin or 1/2 teaspoon dill*
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 squeezed lemon
  • dash of mineral salt

Instructions

Cucumber: Slice the cucumber in half lengthwise, cut the halves in half lengthwise, and chop the cucumber slices into 1/2 inch pieces.

Avocado: Slice the avocado in half lengthwise, remove the seed and using a large spoon scoop the avocado flesh from the skin.

Blend: Add the cucumber, avocado, garlic, cumin or dill, lemon, and salt to the cup of your blender or food processor. Blend until creamy.

Enjoy chilled or at room temperature.

Serve garnished with diced tomatoes, red onions and cilantro if you like. You could even top with julienned carrots, diced colorful bell peppers, etc. Most veggies will make a nice garnish and taste well with this dish while also adding some texture.

This is 2 small servings or one large serving.

Notes

*Use dill or cumin. I like to change up the herb or spice when making this easy pureed soup. Cumin is a warm and heavy spice and is delicious in this soup. When I want to keep it super light, I opt of light and refreshing dill.

  1. I think this recipe is a good start- but it needs more spice and/or acid to kick it up from bland to flavorful. I used a whole lemon (instead of half) and added cayenne pepper to make it tastier. That helped!

  2. Oh yummy 😋 this will be in the regular rotation for quick and refreshing summer meals. I may throw in a little fresh serrano pepper and lime instead of lemon. I have so many cucumbers in my garden right now!

  3. very delicious and summer-y! I feel like I was eating at a fancy restaurant. I would recommend squeezing an entire lemon instead of half, personally.

      Thanks for sharing, Rachel! I like your idea of extra lemon too!

  4. I’m not a fan of cucumber or avocado but can handle it in small doses. I’m working on becoming a vegan and want to have 70-80% raw. Sooo I spiced up the recipe with a little red onion, bell pepper (red & yellow), a small mild chili and a little apple cider vinegar. Adding this little bit more made this recipe not so strong cucumber tasting for me. I see this becoming very useful as I transition into vegan life.

  5. I used regular cucumbers and scraped out the seeds, added Nutpods instead of water to make this a little creamier and also added a little ginger instead of cumin. It was delicious! Thanks so much for this recipe – definitely a new summer favorite and perfect to use up all those garden cucumbers!

    So light and wonderful! I made this for a week long cleanse but I think I may make this regularly! I added a bit more dill (one of my fav herbs), garlic, lemon, and some lime!!!! =D

    Anyone think this would freeze well? I have a ton of cucumbers from the garden and am looking to preserve them some way other than pickling. Thanks!

    1. Julie | The Simple Veganista says:

      Yes, it will freeze well! How nice to have a garden full of cucumbers! Enjoy :)

    This sounds great. I am going to try it tonight with a little jalapeno to spice it up. Thanks for sharing.

    1. A little jalapeno sounds great! I will try that too next time, I love a little heat in my food too. Enjoy!

  10. I did the guacamole with cucumber, garlic, tomatoes, pepper, salt and nutmeg. Delicious!! Sometimes, I add firm tofu, but it changes the texture and the taste. I'll try your soup and your stuffed avocado. Thank you.
