Cucamole - even better than Brocamole!

I got this idea for lightened guacamole from Ellie Krieger (Food TV). I did change the recipe quite a bit and hope Ellie agrees that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I like this recipe even more than the Brocamole I've posted here before, and maybe even better than regular guacamole, because the taste is so light. This would be a nice treat when you're on a puree diet post-op, and you could dip raw veggies or pita chips into it.

1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded & chopped
2 avocados, peeled, pitted & chopped
2 scallions, chopped
1 tsp hot sauce (or to taste)
1/4 tsp salt
dash of black pepper
3+ tbl lime (or lemon) juice
3 tbl chopped fresh cilantro

Whiz in the food processor, adding more lime (or lemon) juice as needed to achieve a smooth consistency.
