Freezing Soup?

I am planning a party on Labor Day weekend and will be serving Gazpacho. It is going to be blended in my food processor. Think it'll freeze well? I will add garnishes of diced veggies just before serving as well as a shrimp garnish.

I would love to have it made ahead of time.
Thanks for any input.

Tomatoes, etc. will freeze ok. Not cukes. Depends on what is in it.

If it's going to be blended smooth before freezing, it should be fine.

I always make gazpacho ahead of time - usually 2 days before we eat it for the simple reason that as it sits in the fridge, the flavors meld and the soup becomes rich and very flavorful. I wouldn't advise making it sooner than 2 days but it's so easy to make you can do this with ease. Just before serving I top the soup with a couple of tablespoons of chopped FRESH cilantro and a couple of squeezes of lime juice. Out of this world!!!
