Cucumber Avocado Boats – Perfect Raw Food Summer Snack

by Kristen Suzanne in Uncategorized

I have a real love for cucumbers… They’re such a great summer time snack. I put them in salads, smoothies, juices, and they’re especially fun as boats for carrying yummy fixin’s like mashed up avocado. Previously, I shared my Avocado Cucumber Smish Smash recipe here… still one of my favorites. Here’s another great one I’ve been making the past couple of weeks. It’s simple, takes about 5 minutes, and uses minimal ingredients.

Cucumber Avocado Boats

Yield 1 to 2 servings

  • 1 cucumber, cut into quarters
  • 1 avocado, pitted and peeled
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 to 2 pinches Himalayan crystal salt
  • Dash onion powder
  • Fresh basil to garnish, optional

After you have your cucumber in quarters, like boats, scrape the seeds into a medium size bowl. Add the avocado, lime, salt, and onion powder. Mash up the contents. Fill the boats with the avocado mixture. Top with fresh basil, if desired. That’s it! Enjoy!
