Cooling Cucumber Avocado Soup

The cooling effect of cucumbers mixed with the creaminess of avocado makes for a refreshing cold soup. Avocados are not only flavorful and rich — they are loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), fiber, and antioxidants.  Avocados also help you absorb nutrients from plant foods, which increases the amount of antioxidants your body takes in.
