Cool Cucumber Avo Soup

This will be short and sweet, kind of just like this recipe. 🙂 I’ve been doing a lot of fun stuff this summer: SUPing around the mountain lakes, backpacking, hut trips, weddings, yoga and tons of farmers markets and live music. After  all that fun outside, you need some nourishing and re-hydrating food! And you need it STAT. On those hot summer days after fun in the sun outside, it is great to have a nice filling soup that’s super easy to make and cools you off. Cucumber Avocado Soup (3)Cucumber Avocado Soup (2)
