By Healing Lifestyles and Spas


  • 2 large cucumbers peeled and chopped
  • 1 yellow or orange pepper, stem and seeds removed coarsely chopped
  • 1-2 hot pepper, jalapeno or poblano pepper coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoon finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon each mint and dill chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 2 teaspoon Essence seasoning (spice mixture includes: salt, garlic ,paprika, thyme, black pepper, oregano, cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup plain non-fat yogurt (or non-dairy yogurt for vegan)


  1. Combine all ingredients in blender, puree until very smooth.
  2. Transfer to refrigerator for 2 or more hours.
  3. Taste and adjust ingredients as needed.
  4. Serve with dollop of plain yogurt or sour cream and minced chives.
  5. I had a cute idea to serve the soup in colored pepper hollowed out bowls by just cutting off the top and removing the seeds.
