  • Transfer basil to the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade; add cucumbers, yogurt, and stock. Process until mixture is smooth. Pass through a fine sieve into a large bowl, pressing on solids to extract liquid; discard solids.

  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and place in refrigerator until soup is well chilled, at least 2 to 3 hours. To serve, ladle soup into shallow bowls, and top each with a scoop of tomato ice.
