After reading the other reviews, I was totally unsure how this would turn out, but I did pretty much follow it on down! I did have a large avocado & ended up using about 2/3 of it! I'm not much of an avocado fan, however, so this was divided up among my other half, my son & DIL, & they loved it & wished I'd made more! Maybe next time I'll even try some of it!

I'm sorry this didn't work out for us. We liked the taste of the soup but not the texture of the avocado. It's a mystery to us, too. My apologies!
I picked this recipe because it was quick and easy, but I'm saving it because it was delicious! I used two large cucumbers (peeled and seeded) and one avocado. The result was a yummy fresh soup. Because it was thicker than I was wanting, I'm going to try it next time with the cucumber seeds in it to see if it will turn out a little more soupy (aka liquid cucumber :-)). But the flavor was light and just what I was looking for!
This was pretty good recipe. although rastio does need bit of a tweeking. for two LARGE cucumbers: if using california avocado(small ones), use 3~4times as much avocado if using green (big)avocado, use whole. cucumbers needs to be seeded otherwise it will turn watery (turns into "liquid cucumber" as natalia 3 would say). otherwise, great cold soup.
Sorry, but Yikes. The cucumber/avocado ratio is way too high in this recipe. My husband and I felt like we were just eating liquid cucumber. The only reason I didn't give it one star is that I may have pureed it too much, contributing to the scariness of it. Healthy yes, palatable...no. Try #55353 instead.
Served this to my dinner guests. Everyone was so impressed. I doubled the recipe to serve 4 and used chopped red bell pepper and sprigs of cilantro as garnish. This recipe is a keeper, thanks!
