Soup in summertime might seem counterintuitive, but that would be to overlook the chilled refreshing twist that can be put on some of the season's bounty of sweet, fresh fruit, blended into any variety of deliciously refreshing fruit soups.
For a refreshing starter, why not try serving up a delicate melon or strawberry soup, served perfectly chilled, full of the ripe flavours of summer favourites.
Or, try making a tried and tested classic like the robust Spanish gazpacho the main event and if you want to finish on a sweet note, you can always go tropical with a mango and pineapple driven dessert style soup served in a chilled bowl.
We have all the chilled fruit soup recipes you need below. Afterall, sometimes soup really is a dish best served cold.
