10 Cold Summer Soups

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!

Once you start making cold soups, you’ll start to see that the possibilities are nearly endless. It’s fun to try different combinations of seasonal veggies, herbs, and even fruits to make your own recipes, and I bet that some of you have whipped up a tasty cold soup or two already this summer. Do you have a favorite cold soup recipe? I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments!
