This cucumber gazpacho is topped with a mango habanero salsa. This soup is a chilled soup and it is perfect for those hot summer days. Flavored with cilantro, this cucumber gazpacho recipe makes a great soup to try.
I don't know about you, but it has been so hot this summer here in the Bay Area. Many houses don't have air conditioning (thank you global warming) and the thought of using an oven or stove is unbearable.
If you haven't tried a cold soup yet...what are you waiting for? You can blend flavors in cold soup just as easily as you can in hot soup!

This fun chilled soup recipe is refreshing and light...and the LA VICTORIA® mango habanero salsa adds a delicious hint of spice.
All you need to make this gazpacho is a Vitamix or blender. The high speed of the blender and chunks of fresh avocado helps make this soup recipe creamy and delicious.
It just doesn't get any easier than this to combine the flavors. This soup is gluten free, vegan, and paleo so it is perfect for most diets. Even better, it is ready in just 5 minutes! You can't beat that for a quick and easy soup recipe.
Add all of the ingredients, except the salsa to your Vitamix. This is all you need to make this soup. Easy, right? Put everything in and blend for 20 seconds.
What kind of cucumbers are best?
It really doesn't matter what kind of cucumber you use for this cold soup. I personally prefer Persian cucumbers because their seeds are soft and tiny, but regular cucumbers work just as well.
Is this soup served chunky or smooth?
You can serve this soup with small chunks, or smooth and creamy. If you like your soup a little chunkier, blend for less time. For those who prefer their soup silky smooth, you can blend for a longer time.
Put all of the ingredients into the blender and mix on high speed for 10 seconds, then pulse for 10 seconds depending on how smooth or chunky you want your soup to turn out.
