Chilled soup or frozen pops? Either way, this luscious summer food is yummy and gets high marks for minerals, vitamin C, and its lower FODMAPs status (which means it’s easier to digest). Naturally sweet rather than spicy, it’s an easy way to help kids enjoy foods they might not otherwise eat. Organic ingredients will reduce glyphosate and pesticides while increasing nutrient content – splurge on those where you can. If your kids are super sensitive to textures, you can cut cucumbers lengthwise, then use a melon ball scoop to remove the seeds before blending.

Instructions
  1. In a blender, VitaMix or food processor, puree the fruit, vegetables, and lime. Add white grape juice only as needed to keep the mixture flowing. Depending on your family's preference, make this either uniformly smooth (great for freezing or slushy drinks on hot days) or leave it more coarse/chunky (traditional gazpacho texture).
  2. For frozen pops, use popsicle forms or paper dixie cups with popsicle sticks inserted. Place in freezer x four hours or until frozen.
  3. For chilled soup/gazpacho, transfer the mixture to a bowl. Stir in the remaining grape juice and mint. Season to taste with salt and pepper if desired. Chill for at least 4 hours, or freeze as desired.
  4. When ready to serve, garnish with mint leaves and a few shavings of lime zest.
