  • 2 cups tomato juice
  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple juice

  1. Combine the tomato juice, pineapple juice, mango and pineapple in a blender and pulse 5 to 8 times, or until just combined; the mixture should be slightly chunky.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight. Ladle gazpacho into bowls and serve.
This tropical riff adds freshly chopped pineapple and mango along with pineapple juice to the tomatoes, cucumber, red and green bell peppers, red onion, cilantro and lime of the classic chilled soup.
