Easy Raw Cucumber Mint Soup

By   10 Comments

With spring upon us the days are getting longer, the sun is getting warmer, and it’s a natural and appropriate time to incorporate more raw foods into our diets.

To explore the delights of preparing and enjoying raw foods, a group of us health-minded bloggers decided to get creative in the kitchen and put together a month of raw recipes.

This soup is incredibly easy and fast. It’s ideal for a warm afternoon, with the cooling properties of the mint and cucumber. Delicious!

Makes 2 servings


  • 2 medium-sized cucumbers, peeled and rough chopped (approximately 2 cups)
  • 1 avocado
  • juice of 2 large lime (approximately 1/4 cup)
  • 2 packed tablespoons fresh mint
  • 1 teaspoon green onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of chili powder



Combine cucumber, avocado, lime juice, mint, green onion, and sea salt in your blender, and purée well. Serve in chilled bowls, topped with a pinch of chili powder. Eat immediately, or refrigerate until ready to enjoy.

    Margaret! This is gorgeous! I tried making a soup similar to this one last summer and I screwed it up royally. I think the Cucumbers and Green Onion are exactly what it needed. Can’t wait to try this! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with the April in the Raw Event!! xoxoxo

    • Thanks so much, Brittany. Let me know how you like it when you try it. Thanks for hosting this awesome event! 🙂 xo

  3. This is one of those dishes I could eat just about every day. So light and refreshing and packed with nutrition. I love the addition of mint, too. Thanks for the inspiration!
