What a wonderful use for fresh tomatoes during the tomato season! I usually freeze fresh tomatoes in the Autumn when they are plentiful. Frozen tomatoes work very well in this recipe. Depending on how powerful your blender is, you may wish to defrost them a bit.
Gazpacho is also very low in calories and very high in nutrition.
