Summer is here, and that means steamy, sweaty days. When you sweat more, you need to make up for it by taking in more fluids than usual, and what better way to up the liquid in your life than with some soup? In the middle of summer, though, sitting down to a steamy bowl of soup probably doesn’t sound super appealing, right? Cold soups to the rescue!
Cold soup can make a satisfying summer meal on its own or as a side dish, and while not all cold soup recipes are raw, most include at least some raw ingredients. That means that each delicious, hydrating spoonful is also packed with all of the extra nutrients that you get from eating raw fruits and veggies. A double win!
