Cucumber and Yogurt Soup

We’re big fans of eating hot foods in the winter to warm us up (works like charm! 😉 ) and we generally stick to eating our cold foods in the summer—with two exceptions. We eat frozen yogurt all year round and we eat this Cool Cucumber & Yogurt Soup in the summer and in the winter—it’s that good! It uses Dannon® OIKOS® Greek nonfat yogurt, so it’s creamy, delicious and an absolute showstopper! Plus it’s easy to make so you can whip it up in no time!
