Here’s another easy summer soup that’s mainly based on tomatoes. It’s a low-calorie, low-fat soup that can be made in just less than 10 minutes and leaves you with plenty of zesty goodness. What’s more, it also offers plenty of vitamin C and vitamin A!

Tomatoes - 2 Ibs (1kg)
Fresh basil - a handful (chopped)
Vegetable broth - 2 cups
Garlic - 2 cloves
Balsamic vinegar - 2 tbsp.

Cold Watermelon Soup

A cool soup made with fresh watermelon and mint would just hit the spot on a sultry day, wouldn’t it? This fruity chilled soup will depend a lot on the sweetness of the watermelon so make sure you get the juiciest one before you begin the cooking process. Watermelons, apart from keeping you hydrated, also contain vitamin C, vitamin A, and many healthy plant compounds. So, this soup is a fast and easy way to enjoy fresh fruits and remain healthy during the summer months. Have it during lunch and you will feel light and fresh all day.

Lemon juice - 2 tbsp.
Fresh mint - 1 tbsp. (chopped)

Cool Cucumber Soup

Cucumbers are one of the best foods you can have in summer. They are low in calories and contain magnesium, potassium, and vitamin K that can help in the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system. Moreover, cucumbers are composed of about 96% water and hence help promote hydration. 

This simple cucumber soup is almost as good as a vegetable broth and you can have it for meals during the summer months with a slice of toasted bread and some cheese.

Cucumber - 2 large (peeled and thinly sliced)
Avocado - 1/2 (ripe, chopped)
Lime juice - 1 lime
Salt - to taste
Avocado oil - 1 tbsp.
Asparagus Soup

Asparagus is low in calories and is a terrific source of nutrients such as fiber, folate, and vitamins A, C, and K. Asparagus also helps in improving digestion and lowering blood pressure. The super-green and super-tasty asparagus soup is easy to make and can be enjoyed even by those who don’t like eating this vegetable. 

Asparagus - 1 Ibs.
Butter - 2 tbsp. (or extra virgin olive oil)
Onion - 1 (chopped)
