Mango Ginger Curry Soup with Shrimp (COLD)

Last year I really got into making gazpacho. For many years the idea of cold tomato soup sounded disgusting. After all, V-8 is gross! It's basically just cold pasta sauce right? I tried some at Gourmet Garage and I was hooked. I loved how refreshing it was on a hot summer's day. And of course I had to figure out how to make it. My favorite was my tropical gazpacho. Sweet, salty, and spicy.
So when I saw this recipe for Mango Ginger Curry Soup in Self Magazine I jumped to try it. The magazine's claim that "A bowl of this succulent soup can help you burn up to 30 percent more fat during a later workout, courtesy of the vitamin C in subtly sweet mangoes." didn't hurt either. I love how you have the spice from the ginger, savory from the curry, sweet from the mangoes, and cream from the coconut milk. It hits all of the senses. A great alternative to your summer gazpacho and a fun addition to your Memorial Day BBQ!
