    This was excellent! It’s the first time I ever made a cold soup and I’ll make this one again. My husband couldn’t get enough of it.

    This is a tasty recipe but you might include a note that over-processing in a food processor can cause the cream to separate. (Trying to become butter?) It happened to me.
