What is cold soup?
I have been making cold soup recipes for a long time now. They are the perfect summer soup! Chilled soups can come in a variety of flavors based on if you use savory vegetables or sweet fruits.
You can even combine the two for a unique cold soup! Pair this cold pineapple soup with an even balanced white wine, and it is magic! If you know me, you know I LOVE wine! I write a lot about wine and pairings on Fearless Dining.
This chilled pineapple soup recipe aka pineapple gazpacho is a soup your whole family will love. It has simple ingredients and is guaranteed to be devoured by your kids. How often can you say that about soup?
My picky one even loved this soup. Of course, I did not tell her there was fresh basil (something green!) or dates in this soup. Sometimes it is better to keep those secrets to myself. If you prefer a hot soup, you will want to check out all of my amazing gluten free soup recipes!

I've never heard of a pineapple soup. It sounds delicious!
Thank you Jenny 🙂
I'm an avid wine drinker. Luckily, when I DO open a bottle, the hubs and I are usually able to finish the bottle before it goes bad. This preservation system sounds interesting, tho.
Oh and the pineapple soup sounds divine.
Thank you so much Nik. What are some of your favorite wines?
I haven't tried pineapple soup before but your recipe sounds so amazing, I want to make it! It sounds perfect for summer.
Thank you Odette, I hope you like this soup as much as my family does :-).

You know, I adore the taste of pineapple but I can't get past the texture. I'm interested in this unique soup but was curious to know if you can feel the pineapple when you're eating this soup? Trying to figure out the best course of action when making this at home. 🙂
Hi Amber, This soup is super smooth so I don't think the texture would be an issue...but often our body is trying to tell us something when we have such a strong reaction to a food. I say try it with watermelon instead of pineapple 🙂
That wine preserver is amazing. Such a good idea. Eveything you have here looks so devine. Mouth is watering now thinking about your soup 🙂
Thank you so much Angela 🙂
