Chilled Melon Soup

Prep: 15 minutes Chill: 1 hour

Serves:4-6

This simple, refreshing soup was enjoyed at several meals during our recent Costa Rica Adventure, always made with a different kind of melon. Cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon were favorites of mine.

Ingredients

  • 2 melons, peeled, chopped and seeded
  • 2 1/4 cups water
  • 1/8 cup fresh minced ginger
  • 2/3 cup ice

Directions

Place all the ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender and process until very smooth. Refrigerate to allow flavors to blend.

Hints: If using watermelon, you may need a bit less water. Start with about 1 cup less, and adjust to taste. This works best in a high speed blender, such as a Vitamix.
