The Sit Smart Diet


  • 3 cups sliced zucchini (no need to cook or peel it)
  • 2 cups sliced cucumber (also no need to peel it. Isn’t this great?)
  • 3 scallions, roughly chopped (save a little extra for garnish)
  • Zest of 2 limes
  • 1 tbsp vegetable broth powder
  • A few drops (5-6) of tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves or arugula
  • 1 garlic glove, peeled
  • 2 cups water
  • a few ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup oatly Imat fraiche or Oatly creamy oat (or soy cream of sugar-free soy yogurt)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Put all ingredients except cream, salt and pepper into a blender. Puree until smooth, adding extra ice cubes if you like the soup a little thinner. Then add the cream and puree again briefly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
