Cucumber Buttermilk Soup

Creamy yet light. Cold and refreshing. This one’s inspired by my mother-in-law who was just over for a visit and LOVES cold soup on a hot summer’s day. Hey, and green is one of her favorite colors!


Not only is my version delicious, healthy and satisfying—  it’s as easy as can be. No need to turn on a stove or oven, this soup literally takes minutes to put together.

Pre blending

And it’s so versatile! It makes a divine start to a dinner party meal, or I often serve it alongside avocado toast or something off my grill as a quick weeknight dinner.

Blended soup

Another fun thing to do- try serving as “soup shooters” for a cocktail party, or drinks al fresco, pool side.

You’re going to love this soup, no matter which way you slurp it!
