Cold Avocado + Cucumber Soup

As the thermometer inches up around the one hundred degree zone (yikes), we're doing everything we can in Los Angeles to beat the heat. Cold showers, dipping in pools, hydrating. I had a cold soup last night that was so refreshing, so clean, so utterly transporting (I wish I were kidding) I'm sharing it here. Make a jug of it. Keep it in the fridge. Sip as required.



Cold Avocado + Cucumber Soup
from Gwyneth Paltrow's "It's All Good"

Serves 4

Zest and juice of 3 limes
2 large cucumbers, peeled, de-seeded, roughly chopped
2 avocados, peeled and roughly chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt

Combine everything in a powerful blender and blitz until it's totally creamy and smooth.

Oh my. The three limes, added to cucumber and avocado, make this sound heavenly; a mix of three of my favorite things. I'll make this tomorrow.

Heat or no heat, this sounds amazing. That said, sending cooling thoughts your way.

My name is CARISSA WILLIAM, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr AIFEBO , which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr AIFEBO e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 24hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr AIFEBO, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...
