Directions

Warm the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until tender. Add the cucumber, broth, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Bring cucumber mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 6-8 minutes until cucumbers are soft and tender. Let cool for 10 minutes. Transfer cucumber mixture to a food processor or high-powdered blender. Add avocado, and puree until smooth. Pour soup into a large serving bowl and stir in Greek yogurt. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or until chilled through.
