Chilled Avocado and Cucumber Soup Shooter


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.
