3. Chilled Tomato Basil Soup

Looking for a recipe that tastes like it was just brought out of a restaurant’s kitchen? This chilled tomato basil soup does just that! 

While you can totally opt for fresh tomatoes when available, canned tomatoes also slide. 

This recipe is mostly made up of root vegetables chopped up and mixed with heavy whipping cream. 

Can you guess the magic ingredient to this magnificent recipe? Orange juice! 

A splash of OJ has the power to freshen up the whole pot and add a sweeter taste. 

4. Chilled Avocado Soup

The creaminess of the soup paired with the crunchiness of the toppings perfectly goes hand in hand.

Think of this recipe as Taziki in a soup form. Now before you run away, hear me out! 

Rich yogurt paired with fresh herbs and garlic is everything you ever needed, but never knew.

For a pleasing presentation, serve up this watermelon gazpacho in a martini glass and enjoy!

The creamy coconut base mixed with the tanginess of the peach is absolutely mouth watering. 

The coolest part of this recipe is that you can switch out the peaches for any other fruit you might have on hand. 

Pro Tip: Don’t forget to finish off the recipe with a few slices of fresh fruit! 

8. Chilled Green Pea Soup

The summertime flavor in this recipe is absolutely out of this world. 

If you’re worried about slaving away in the kitchen shelling peas, you’re in luck!

Don’t forget to garnish the dish with a few frozen peas, dill leaves, and fried onions on top.

This yummy recipe is ideal for my lovers of Polish chlodnik. Not only is it super low fat, but it’s also vegetarian! 

Filled with beets, cucumbers, and radish, this awesome dish is incredibly nutritious and healthy. 

Be sure to serve this yummy cold soup with a side of rye or pumpernickel bread. 

I love adding a sliced hard-boiled egg on top to truly get a hearty meal!

Simply combine some cooled blueberries and yogurt in a blender and process until the ingredients are smooth.

Add a slice of ginger and pinch of cinnamon for some extra taste!

This cold pear soup is a fun twist on both sweet and savory. The contrast between the onion and pear is surprisingly a match made in heaven.
