Summer lunch for two

My father hated yoghurt, and he wouldn't eat an avo if you paid him! However, this soup is absolutely delicious, and he loved it.
Put a peeled, de-stoned avocado in the liquidizer, add 1 cup of fat free natural yoghurt, 1 cup of skim milk and a generous tablespoon of mint sauce. Whoosh altogether. Test for seasoning - you will need to add a little salt and a good grind of black pepper, and maybe more mint sauce. Thin it down with more milk, if it's too thick. You might also want to sharpen it up a little with some lemon juice. Serve immediately (it discolours if you let it stand too long) with crusty bread. Unfortunately, this is high in calories/kilojoules. But at least the oils in the avo are mono-unsaturated and healthy.
4.5 Weight Watcher points per serve, without the bread. Very filling, though.

It is really smooth and gorgeous - and, yes, it's cold. Very good on a hot summer day. Deliciously creamy with only healthy oils! Still a bit heavy on the kilojoules, tho.
