Healthy Watermelon Gazpacho Recipe

A Sweet and Spicy Metabolism-Boosting Gazpacho That Hydrates

If you love a chilled Summer soup, it's time to blend up this inventive gazpacho recipe from Relish: An Adventure in Food, Style, and Everyday Fun ($28), the new cookbook from Daphne Oz (Dr. Oz's daughter!). Sweet, spicy, and refreshing, this cooling soup blends a healthy array of hydrating produce like cucumbers and watermelon with fresh herbs and the right hit of spice that can help your metabolism soar.

Vitamin-C-rich jalapeños get their heat from the compound capsaicin that also works to boost your endorphin levels. While you might not be smiling once you complete all the chopping this soup requires, the good news is you can prep the produce a one or two days in advance and blend it all together once you're ready to enjoy.
