I have some avocados left over from last weekend, and they are starting to look tired, very tired, too tired to be used in a salad. And like my beloved grandmother, I hate food waste, so no way to throw them. I need a new recipe, here it is:

Ingredients for 4 portions:

  • 2 avocados
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 125 g of yogurt
  • Salt, pepper
  • A pinch of chilli
  • Some fresh mint leaves and/or basil leaves


  • Preparation: 10 mins
  • Cooking: none
  • Rest: 2 h

1- Cut the avocado in two and remove the flesh with a spoon (try not to damage the skin and don’t throw them away as we will need it later on for presentation) and cut it into pieces.

2- Peel the cucumber alternating the strips and cut it also into small pieces.

3- Keep a couple of mint leaves aside for presentation, and put the rest of them with the avocado, the cucumber, the yogurt, the lemon juice, salt pepper and chilli into a blender and mix them together.

4- Keep refrigerated at least 2 or 3 hours before serving, as this soup is better when very cold. I like to use the avocado skin to serve this soup, with a couple of mint leave on the top.
