On a hot summer day, there’s nothing as tasty and refreshing as a cold … soup? While soups are generally thought of as cold-weather staples, they’re equally as delicious during warmer months. The trick is to avoid those steamy broths and focus on cold soups with creative ingredients. One recipe I’m sure you’ll love is my Cold Melon Berry Soup.
This cooling soup is made with cantaloupes, which are packed with vitamin A and vitamin C, and a mix of fresh blueberries and strawberries. With only four ingredients, this Cold Melon Berry Soup is a summer dish you’ll want to make again and again. Don’t let the name fool you, either. Though it’s a “soup,” it’s really more of a dessert — or a seriously tasty appetizer!
Start by removing the peels from the cantaloupes and cutting the fruit into large chunks. Because there are only four different ingredients in this soup, try getting your hands on the freshest varieties possible.
Next, puree the melon chunks in the blender or food processor until everything is liquified. Then mix in your choice of lemon or lime juice and let the mixture chill in the freezer for about half hour.
Serve the Cold Melon Berry Soup in individual bowls with your favorite berries on top. I love serving this healthy, fruity soup during warm-weather dinner parties or as an after-dinner treat. It’s always unexpected but very well-received. I think your family will love it too!
