Cold soups can be refreshing and appetizing at the same time, especially when garnished generously with perky mint and tantalizing pepper powder. This Cold Cucumber Soup is conveniently low-cal and low-fat, yet filled with the goodness of water-rich cucumber and crunchy capsicum. Low-fat milk and low-fat curds provide the necessary base for this soup, striking a proper balance between lightness and lusciousness!

Cool and refreshing soup made from cucumber, curds and low fat milk with nice small bite size pieces of cucumber, and capsicum. Make sure you serve it really chilled.
