I can remember the very first time I had a cold fruit soup. It was strawberry actually, and it was divine. I remember the day well, funny how foods, flavors and aromas all intertwine with deep, old memories. This is my little spin on that cool summer- soup vibe.
Smoothies and soups are so easy on digestion, they make a great choice as a clean eater… and are so satisfying. This is a delicious watermelon gazpacho recipe that I have added to my 10 day detox.
