The temperature was in the 90’s and the idea of cooking was making me lose my appetite. This soup is made in a blender, takes all of 5 minutes and is a great way to cool down. Almost all of the ingredients contain cooling properties and they allow the body to be able to deal with the heat. The cooling foods here are the cucumbers, mint, soy milk and lemon. Just the recipe to cool off on a hot summer day.

Ingredients:

6 medium sized cucumbers, peeled and seeded (you don’t have to seed them but then the soup is a bit more watery).
1 clove garlic
8 mint leaves
2 branches of dill, bottom part removed
1 lemon, juiced
3 scallions
3 cups soy milk
1 tbsp ground flax seed
salt and pepper

Place all the ingredients in a food processor or a blender and puree until smooth. Refrigerate for 2 hours and serve cold.

Serves 4-6

Enjoy!

Note: For a lighter soup, replace the soy milk with oat milk.
