Awesome avocado and mint soup, so simple and loaded with nutrients. Avocados are rich in luteins and folate, both important for heart. Pureeing in the blender fills the mixture with air, making it thicker.
2 ½ cups (600 milliliters) water
1 small avocado, peeled and pitted
1 small unpeeled cucumber, ends trimmed and roughly chopped
½ cup (15 grams) packed mint leaves
Handful of spinach leaves
1 garlic clove, cut in half
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, or more to taste
1 ¼ teaspoons salt, or more to taste
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1. Combine all the ingredients in your Ninja blender, and blend until smooth, adding more water if the soup is too thick.
2. Taste and adjust the seasonings with salt and lime juice if needed.
3. Serve immediately, or cover and keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
