Cold Cucumber Soup - for the Weight Watcher or Diet

READY IN: 35mins
Top Review by Mirj2338

Very very good! I whipped this up in the morning before leaving for work and then let it chill in the fridge. Came home from a hot and horrible day at the office, and this was so cooling and refreshing, it brought me back to life again. I wanted to keep this all-dairy, so I used vegetable broth. I'm also on a diet that doesn't allow potatoes, so I substituted one celery root instead. Before pureeing in the blender I tossed in the fresh dill, and didn't need any garnish at all. Great summer refresher!
