Inspired by Melissa Clark’s recipes,I’ve begun making cold soups in the blender. I’ve made a cream of cucumber soup that required cooking the cucumbers before blending, but this recipe just purees the soup from scratch.

I did peel the cucumbers and seed them before adding to the blender. Also added an avocado, red onion, half a clove of chopped garlic, small container of plain yogurt, a splash of buttermilk and juice of one lime. Four large ice cubes added at the end and whirred around to cool the soup. Luscious and refreshing!
