Cold Shrimp Soup

Tonight I made a new meal that I am really excited about. I was introduced to it at work on Friday. Dena was in the kitchen patiently dicing little pieces of radishes. She was making a cold shrimp soup that she said was not only delicious, but contains no fats. I'll share the recipe:

1 bunch radish
1 bunch scallions
1 bunch cilantro
 1 hot house cucumber
1 avocado
1 bottle of Clamato
 2 small low sodium V8 juice
Garlic powder
Lime juice
3/4 lb shrimp
Small package of crab meat

 Finely dice vegetables and seafood. (I omitted the crab) Add juice. You can add hot sauce if you wish, which I did. I also added a little bit of salsa. It was surprisingly filling. I had a couple of cups for dinner and I was very content. There is enough to keep in the refrigerator for a quick snack tomorrow.
Only there is one problem. After I ate  the soup and wrote this post, I read the ingredient list on the Clamato. Besides a lot of words that I can't pronounce, high fructose corn syrup was listed as the third ingredient. I should have just finished off the cheesecake. No seriously, it was still only 60 calories per cup. Next time I will use tomato juice and add a little clam juice to it.
