Creamy Basil Zucchini Soup
Aug 182015
 

Today I have a simple recipe for a yummy Zucchini Soup. What I love most about this soup is it can be enjoyed hot or cold. These days, with the temps being through the roof, I don’t like to consume hot foods all too often. Cold drinks, cold salads and cold soups… that’s where it’s at!

This Zucchini Soup is very creamy and satisfying, but unlike other creamy soups, this one is actually healthy! Using yogurt to give it the creamy texture, this soup is high in probiotics and low in fat! Perfect for keeping the calories in check and keeping the diet swimsuit-friendly!
