Soup and summer don’t usually mix but summer and gazpacho? A total match made in heaven. This cool low-carb Summer Mexican Shrimp Gazpacho is bursting with vibrant fresh flavors from tomatoes, jalapeños, cucumber, onion, garlic, and a bell pepper.

By blending those veggies with a little lime, vinegar, cumin, salt, and a very generous glug of olive oil you’ll have one creamy soup that’s ready to be topped with spicy grilled shrimp and creamy avocado. This is one soup you’ll want all summer long.

The awesome thing about gazpacho is that it can be made ahead of time since it does need to chill for a few hours anyways. For those busy summer days this is the perfect meal to make ahead of time so it will be ready to go when you are.

I just made this and can’t wait to eat it later. I added more garlic because I love garlic. It has really great flavor. So I can’t wait to eat it completely with the shrimp and toppings. I will use the left over soup to make a stew in a few days. Thanks for great recipes!
