Let's take a cool dip! 

One of the best things to do in the summer is to go swimming! I spend A LOT of time every summer searching and plotting for a pool to hop in! Maybe after a particularly fun swim, you could make this soup. While enjoying it, think about the fun swim you had!

Swimming Pool Soup

1 avocado, peeled, pitted and in pieces

1 cucumber, seeded and chopped roughly

½ cup low-fat buttermilk

1 garlic clove

1 Tbs. lemon juice

salt and pepper

for pool floaties: an additional cucumber


1. Put avocado, cucumber, buttermilk, garlic, lemon and salt and pepper to taste in blender and blend until smooth. 2. Pour soup into two bowls. 3. To make floaties for your pools cut some large rectangular slices out of your cucumber for rafts. Cut small rectangles for pillows for your rafts. 4. Cut some circular slices out of your cucumber with wholes in the center for inner tubes. 5. Place floaties in your pools. Makes two swimming pools.
