A lot of us think that soups are not meant for the summer months, but we’re here to bust that myth. A mix of chilled fruits and veggies make for the perfect soup, not just to beat the heat, but also satiate you while being light on the stomach. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

Beetroot & Kokum Gazpacho
The classic beetroot soup gets a delicious summer makeover at Botanica Cafe. Known for its healthy food, they’ve given this a healthy twist, with the beetroot as the main base, kokum, a little bit of masala to add some flavour and help pack a punch. A great option if you’re looking for a quick meal, we think.

Chilled Watermelon Or Seasonal Fruit Gazpacho
Served in Mustard, the famed restaurant that sits inside Atria Mall, this chilled favourite is made up of watermelon and chopped coriander. There's another variant that's made up of seasonal fruits.
The restaurant stands out as one of the better well-balanced food destinations in the city, with every order or dish served that is usually a hit. With fresh ingredients that take you places this summer, what’s not to love?
The only thing to keep in mind is that the chilled soup is a part of the Sunday Brunch menu, so make your way here on a lazy Sunday and have your fill.

Chilled Melon Gazpacho
Chef Hemant Oberoi’s restaurant certainly has some gems, one of them being a refreshing summer cooler that has melon as the base, coconut snow, saffron as a topping and a mix of melons as a garnish. This is probably the next best thing to a vacay at some beach resort.
You can also pick from an option of Apple or Tomato Gazpacho, if that's more of your thing.

Beetroot Or Orange & Carrot Cold Soup
Boteco is one place we love to head to, for all of its food, and there's just no exception even when summer's kicked in. We've been told that the chef will whip up a delicious beetroot chilled soup or even an orange and carrot cold soup that's not on the menu.
But, make sure you make your way there soon enough, as the chef likes to surprise you with a different menu ever so often.
