Cucumber and Mint Soup (FM)

 | 8 Comments  | FM, Lunch/Dinner, Nutrition


This cold soup is really refreshing for the summer months. It’s low in calories, yet filling and full of healthy ingredients. If you’re not a big fan of spicy food, you can add only 1/4 tsp of freshly grated chili pepper.

*Yields 2 portions


1 cucumber

1 1/2 cups goat kefir

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/2 clove garlic

1 tsp chilli pepper, fresh and grated

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

1/4 cup chopped mint + small whole leaves for garnish

1/2 tbsp chopped dill + small amount for garnish

1/2 avocado

pinch of chili powder – for garnish



  1. Put all the ingredients (except for the herbs and chili for garnish) into a blender and turn it on to medium/high. Blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the soup into two bowls and garnish with fresh mint, dill, and a pinch of chili powder.

Tip: You can save the second portion in a closed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

    Hi Zuzka,
    What is the difference between chili powder and chili pepper?

      I think chilli pepper could be like the flakes for example, to make it spicy. And the chilli powder is just for garnish at the end, just a bit, the flakes for garnish would be weird.

    I have enough cucumbers getting ready in my garden to make this wonderful soup for us all. Thanks so much for the recipe, Zuzka.

    Delicious. Instead of kefir I used soy yogurt and water. Yay now it’s vegan

    I just made this and it’s absolutely delicious. I used goat yogurt, half tub and 1 cup coconut milk and a bit of water. Sooo tasty on a hot summer day.
    Thank you for this recipe Zuzka
