Fresh, sweet, organic cucumbers

Chef’ Katie’s Tips: 

Quicker Chilling: Add a handful of ice cubes while pureeing the soup for quicker chilling.

Peeling and Seeding Cucumbers: Use a good vegetable peeler to peel the waxy skin off the cucumbers. Removing the skin makes for a smoother, creamier soup. Halve the cucumbers. Use a large spoon to scoop out the seeds. These can be a bit rough on the tummy, so it’s best to remove. No, you don’t need a fancy kitchen gadget to do it.

Coconut Milk Alternatives: You can substitute 2 medium avocadoes or 1 cup cashews, soaked overnight.

Elegant Presentation: For a fancy presentation, serve in a chilled wine glass.  You can serve as an appetizer at a dinner party by pouring the soup into small, chilled shot glasses.
