Summer Fruit Gazpacho

Summer Fruit Gazpacho is so unbelievably refreshing, you’ll want to eat it every hot day you come upon. And when you find how easy it is to make, you just might actually find yourself making it all summer long!

Traditional gazpacho is a cold soup made with tomatoes and other vegetables. This version is completely different but we wanted to call it a gazpacho because we love the idea of a cold soup during these hot summer months.

The “soup” is actually made from fresh cantaloupe. We used strawberries, peaches, and blueberries for the toppings. But, you’re welcome to try it with any summer fruit you like! Kiwi, raspberries, apricots… whatever you want! You really can’t go wrong.

Catherine, our cofounder, made this soup one morning and let it chill overnight. The next day, Catherine and her kids sat on the kitchen floor armed with three spoons and an enormous bowl of this refreshing, sweet soup. There’s only one word to explain what happened at our impromptu picnic when we tried the first refreshing spoonful. De-VOURED! We finished the whole batch before the day was over.

Soup for breakfast you might ask? After taking your first taste of this one, it won’t seem at all strange to eat in the morning or any time of day you want to serve it. Especially when it’s a nutritious as this!
