Mango Gazpacho ( Zero Points Plus)



Following Weight Watchers? This fabulous chilled soup is ZERO points and you can make it quickly. Talk about veggies; this soup is loaded. Lets face it, it may be well into September, but it is 90 degrees outside. A nice bowl of ice cold Mango Gazpacho will hit the spot!

I found this recipe on Pinterest! It sounded interesting, so I thought I'd give it a try. It was definitely different -but very tasty. My adapted recipe called for most of the end of summer vegetables: tomatoes, peppers, red onion, garlic, cucumber, corn on the cob kernels, and mango.

Using my blender, it was easy enough to make. I served it in these cute little bowls. The presentation was lovely and everyone seemed to like it.

It is certainly healthy and the best part as I said is that on Weight Watchers it is Zero Points Plus .  The soup itself is a creamy puree, but it is topped with a hearty medley of crunchy vegetables and mango. I loved the texture and colors. And of course it's gluten free and vegan.

I think it tastes best really cold and after the flavors had a chance to mingle.
Two days later it is even more amazing!
It also tastes great with a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt.

  3. I am having difficulty imagining the flavors that dominate. I am a big fan of mango and I can only see the mango being magnified in this soup. I agree, it is too hot for soup to "sweat" by. I was thinking strawberry soup but this sounds like a good alternative. A good year to you and your family.
