Chilled Avocado and Cucumber Soup Shooter

Yum

Avocado Week
Welcome to day 5 of Avocado week here at Curry and Comfort.  Today is the last day of this totally fun week of playing around with avocados so I wanted to end with a party perfect soup shooter.  This soup comes together in minutes, then all you do is let the flavors develop in the fridge.  Finish off by pouring the soup into small glasses and serve a fun cold appetizer or starter for any summer meal.  

PS... remember to check out my post from Day 2 for the Good Cook avocado tool giveaway.

1 clove garlic grated
1 jalapeno pepper seeded

  4. Avocadoes are so healthy - great source of lutein for healthy eyes, besides more potassium than in a banana!! Have a wonderful weekend, Ramona! :)

  5. Can't wait to try this recipe. It looks refreshing. I am sorry to bring this up in comments, but I could not find email to contact you privately. Is there a close button for your new bottom banner? Thank you.

    1. That bottom banner is weird... I never placed a banner at the bottom of my blog. I saw it on my blog a few days ago and I could not close it either... but it's gone now. I hope the next time you check here.. it's gone for you too. :)

      Hope you like the recipe.

  8. I always have such mixed feelings about chilled soup, but then you go and added avocado and I think you won me over!
