I LOVE soup. It makes me feel like I’m doing so much good for my body, and I eat it all through the year. Sometimes… and this doesn’t happen often… I’d like to have something lighter and cooler.
Enter Cold Cucumber Soup!
If you have trouble wrapping your brain around the idea of soup that is cold, I totally understand. I’m the same way. But it helps me accept the idea if I have small portions of it that might be a snack, or an appetizer.
The cool (unintended pun) thing about this recipe is that there is NO cooking involved. You don’t have to heat up the kitchen! Just pop everything in a blender. AND there is no dairy or coconut milk. (I’ve heard you, coconut-sensitive folks!) The creaminess comes from fresh avocado.
In the past, I have found cucumber soup to be – well, bland. Eh, I’m not into bland. This soup has a punch from lemon, and fresh mint and dill. One last bonus – bone broth. ‘Nuff said.
Give it a try. And maybe a second try. It can take a while for us to get used to something new. Like COLD soup.

- Place all ingredients in the blender. Process until very smooth.
- Serve in small glasses, wine goblets, jelly jars, or parfait glasses. Whatever suits your fancy. 🙂
- Your blender will be very full. You may need to pulse it a few times to bring the level down enough to get the lid on! Proceed with caution. You don’t want green stuff splattered all over your kitchen…
