Cold Cucumber Soup - Cucumber Gazpacho (5-minute recipe)

Byron
You can’t beat cucumber soup for a refreshing snack and here in Spain, it’s called ‘gazpacho de pepino’ or ‘cucumber gazpacho’. This recipe takes around 5 minutes to prepare and once chilled in the fridge for an hour, it is ready to drink!
This cold cucumber soup recipe fits the bill perfectly and requires no cooking at all to make a delicious and silky smooth cold soup that’s ideal for cooling off any time of day (or night!). Best of all, it’s super easy to make and has just 9 easy-to-find ingredients.
