Background of the Dish

spanish gazpacho recipe

The typical gazpacho of Andalusia had its origin hundreds of years ago, when, thanks to the conquest of America, the tomato (as well as other fruits and vegetables) reached the old continent.

In this article, I will talk about the mango gazpacho from Axarquía, which, as its name says, comes from that region located in the province of Malaga.

Even though the mango is a tropical fruit, for several years it has been successfully cultivated in Spain, and in late summer and early autumn, it has the best flavor.

The things you need to make this chilled fruit soup are very easy to find, and you may even have some of them at home.

The base ingredient is ripe mango, but you can make a lot of changes to the other ingredients if you have trouble finding them or don’t like them.

As for the necessary equipment, you should have any type of food processor or blender, to achieve that the Spanish gazpacho reaches the desired consistency. 

However, if you use very ripe vegetables and fruits you can crush everything with a mortar.

How to Make Mango Gazpacho from Axarquia – Step by Step Guide

  1. To start with this simple gazpacho recipe all you have to do is to peel the mango, cut it in half and remove the pit. Cut it into small cubes, even though the size doesn’t matter because the blender will take care of it.
  2. Up next grab the vegetables listed, like the bell peppers, cucumber, tomatoes, and garlic.  Wash, peel and cut them into tiny square pieces. You can save some of the bell peppers and use them for garnishing later. 
  3. Then take them to the container of your food processor or blender, and add seasonings, vinegar, and oil.
  4. After that blend everything until you reach the desired consistency. You can add more water if you want it more liquid, or more fruit if you want it thicker. Some people add stale bread to make it thicker, but this is a light summer gazpacho so just add more fruit. 
  5. For the final step put your mango gazpacho in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before eating (ideally 2 hours). If you don’t have enough time you can eat it immediately or you can take it to the freezer, and you’ll have a fast chilled mango soup

Substitution of Ingredients

What I like the most about making gazpachos is that there are hundreds of changes that you can make in the recipe, and thus adapt it completely to your tastes. 

So you have no excuse not to make homemade gazpacho! For example, you can add different fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, apples, watermelons, basically any that you like.

This will modify the flavor and color of the gazpacho, but I assure you that the taste is delicious. You can try our watermelon gazpacho if you’re looking for another fruity recipe.

It is also a good technique if you live with a small child (or even an adult) who does not like to eat fruits, since you can add a large amount of them and tell them that there is only their favorite fruit.

Apart from that you can add more tomato, or remove it completely from the recipe.

If you remove it, you should add a little water, otherwise, you would have a mango bowl or sorbet, which is also tasty but it is not gazpacho.

This is the best gazpacho recipe, but it may not be the one for all tastes. So if there are many ingredients that you don’t like, you can try other gazpacho recipes like gazpacho with shrimp.

If you’re in a hurry and just want something simple you can try our gazpacho with canned tomatoes, and chunky gazpacho recipe that are perfect for every occasion. 

Tips on Serving Mango Gazpacho from Axarquia

cold fruit soup

What I like the most about fruit soup is that even if it seems at first glance something that can only be eaten as a dessert or as a breakfast or a snack, it can be eaten at any time of the day.

This lets you play with different toppings that you can add, to make your mango gazpacho look like it came from a top restaurant.

If you are eating it for lunch or dinner you can put some of the cut bell peppers as a topping, which will give your gazpacho some beautiful vibrant colors. 

You can also put a little ham or croutons to give it more texture and a more salty taste.

If you eat it as a dessert or sweet snack, there are also different toppings. For example, put roasted nuts, or even chocolate chips! since the chocolate goes very well with the mango.

You can also find out how to cut a mango, and cut it into different shapes like stars and hearts, and then put them on top of your cold fruit soup.

How to Store Mango Gazpacho from Axarquia

How to Store Mango Gazpacho from Axarquia

There are different techniques to save this Spanish gazpacho recipe, so if you want to know them, keep reading!

The first thing you can (and should) do is store the fruit gazpacho in the refrigerator.

Here it can last up to 3 days, which is less than a regular gazpacho, mainly because the mango can take a rusty taste if it is kept for longer.

Besides that, I do not recommend keeping it in the freezer, since when it is frozen, it has so much water that comes from fruit and vegetables, it usually crystallizes.
