Watermelon Gazpacho with Mint

I love making this refreshing and cooling soup for those hot summer nights when you just don’t feel like cooking.

Here are some fun facts about the nutrition power of this soup:

Watermelon and tomatoes are both high in lycopene, which is one of the most powerful antioxidants out there. It helps prevent cancer, improve eye health, and support a healthy brain.

Garlic and onion are great for the immune system.

Yellow bell pepper is high in vitamin C.

Cucumber naturally hydrating, high in fiber and minerals.

Solid nutrition and fresh flavors, all in one delicious and beautiful dish. Enjoy!
