Bloat Banishing Soup

Banish Bloat and Energize with this Chilled Cucumber Mint Soup

This strategic and tasty recipe comes from my friends at Popsugar – Low in calories, delicious, hydrating AND an excellent way to BEAT the bloat . Cooling cucumbers, mint, and yogurt serve as the base, while garlic, chives, and a touch of lemon add bright flavor.

It’s like a cleanse for your insides! (and I’m not usually a big fan of chilled soups, this bloat banishing soup just works)!
