This is delicious! I didn't peel the cucumbers because I think the peel has nutrients (plus I like my soups chunky). I love the wasabi. I also used no fat yogurt. I didn't add the ice cubes at the end because I like a thicker soup. Really delicious!

I could not wait to make this soup! I tagged it in the afternoon and had the ingredients in my shopping cart on the way home, and the soup on the table by 7 PM! I do have to admit one thing, I left out the avocado! I'm on a diet at the moment where avocados are not allowed, but that didn't stop me from making a great Cucumber Soup with Wasabi Cream! To make up for the loss of texture from the avocado I added some sour cream to the yogurt. I also added a little fresh dill, and sprinkled some toasted nori on top. I've got the leftovers sitting in a Tupperware in my fridge at work, I can hardly wait for lunch!
