This creamy, satisfying soup preserves the heart-healthy oils found in avocados and almonds. To save time, use store-bought almond milk. Serve with raw-food flaxseed crackers and a salad of chopped kale, arugula, shredded beets, and carrots.

Directions
  1. Place almonds in a large glass jar and cover with filtered water; soak overnight. Drain and rinse well. In a food processor, blend almonds and slowly add 2 cups filtered water until smooth, 2–4 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve or cheesecloth into a bowl, pressing or squeezing to extract all liquid. Discard solids (or save them for baking). Refrigerate milk in a clean glass jar.
  2. In a food processor, combine avocados, cucumber, and scallions; add almond milk and purée until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in cilantro and pulse for 5 seconds. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with cilantro sprigs.
