Chilled Cucumber Avacodo soup with mint and cilantro

We have had some really hot days of summer. Your body then craves some cooling foods like cucumber, yoghurt, kefir and lots of raw cooling vegetable salads. In this soup the airy cool cucumber is combined and balanced with the dense, velvety texture of Omega rich Avocado, a perfect marriage of colour, taste and texture !!!!  Off course the addition of cooling herbs like mint and cilantro is the cherry on the cake ( soup !!! ). Hope you will love this soup as much as my family did.

1 ripe avocado peeled and seed removed
