This is the easiest chilled summer soup that you’ll ever find and takes less than 10 minutes to make. If you pre-chill all the ingredients, you can eat it immediately – it’s like having a health-boosting smoothie for a starter and is a great take-out lunch if you have a fridge at work to keep it cool. It is packed with Vitamin C, fibre and a generous dose of other vitamins and minerals from Vitamin K to copper.

Top Tip – For the quickest & easiest way to do the cucumber: peel it whole; cut lengthways into quarters; slice out the seeds in one knife action and you have a peeled and deseeded cucumber. Then chop it up.
