This Spicy Watermelon Gazpacho is everything you've wanted in a chilled soup! Light and refreshing, and abundant with fresh flavors, this is the ultimate summer gazpacho!

  • Total Time: 15 min
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 pounds seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 3 medium ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 English cucumber, seeded and chopped
  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or grapeseed oil)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Handful of fresh basil, torn
  • Handful of fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. Prep all of the vegetables and watermelon. Reserve some celery and bell pepper for garnish.
  2. Place all of the ingredients into a high-powered blender or food processor and purée until smooth.
  3. Taste for seasoning, and add a little water (a tablespoon at a time) if it needs more liquid.
  4. Chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours, or overnight, until ready to serve.
  5. Garnish with chopped up peppers and celery, and a few basil leaves.


  • Use up whatever veggies are in your fridge! This is the perfect soup for that. Key ingredients are the watermelon and tomatoes.
  • Want it spicier? I used jalapeño peppers, but you can also use Thai chili peppers, serrano peppers, and in a pinch, red pepper flakes for heat!
  • I used extra-virgin olive oil in this recipe. You can also use grapeseed oil or safflower oil.
  • This spicy watermelon gazpacho will last in the fridge for several days. BONUS: the longer it sits, the more the flavors will be enhanced!
