Refreshing Cold Cucumber Summer Soup (Gazpacho)

Cold soups are great for hot summer days, also known as Gazpacho, they can be served as appetizers, part of a main course meal, and as desserts depending on the ingredients. Gazpachos are easy to make and extremely refreshing. Here is my favorite cold cucumber summer soup recipe you must try!

Note: you can omit the garlic to prevent garlic breath but personally, I love having raw garlic in my recipes because they are packed with amazing benefits and great for gut health.

Also, you can serve your cold summer soups with croutons but I usually have mine with toasted pita bread cause it just tastes better.
