A Keep It Simple Cantaloupe Soup Recipe

I’ve been eating the most delicious cantaloupe this week!  Barrie Hill Farms has the sweetest melons I’ve ever tasted.  I’m going to have to ask Morris what his secret is to such amazing taste.  I came home with four of them and I’ve been eating them every day!  I decided a quick and easy soup would be another great way to enjoy them and so I created this fun little recipe that I hope you’ll enjoy.

This will take you ten minutes to make and you can let it chill for a couple hours or overnight.  There are very few ingredients in this soup so it’s important not to take any shortcuts on this recipe.   Each one is integral to the final flavour so no cheating, please!

You can put a dollop of yogurt on top when serving or do a drizzle of honey as I did.  To be honest, I was certain the yogurt would sink immediately and make it impossible to get a good photo but it would definitely add to the deliciousness.

Chilled Soups Are Delicious

I have surprised myself and become a big fan of chilled soups and this chilled Cantaloupe Soup is no exception. Last summer I made a Strawberry Melon Summer Soup that is still very popular on the blog so if you’ve got extra strawberries, just toss them in and add some lime and you’ll have another lip-smacking treat.  And you’ve got to know this is going to impress your guests, right?  Find some fresh flowers to garnish and they’ll think you slaved all day.

Next up is cantaloupe slushies.  Can hardly wait to see how those turn out!  I just have to figure out what to put in them!  Are you a fan of chilled soups or do you prefer the more traditional hot soups?  I will admit that the only thing remotely appealing to me about winter is the thought of creating some scrumptious new soup recipes!  If you share your favorite types of soup in the comment section below, I’ll try to create a recipe for you.  Cheers!

A Low-Calorie Cantaloupe Strawberry Soup Recipe

I made PINK soup!  Isn’t it the craziest looking soup you’ve ever seen!?  Once you get past the colour though, you’ll love the flavours.  I expected it to be closer to the cantaloupe colour but seems the red wanted to take over.  I’ve been going a little crazy on my purchase of fresh fruit lately and suddenly found myself with some berries and melon that I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat in time so this recipe was born.

If you can operate a blender or food processor, you can make this tasty, chilled strawberry soup recipe.  No cooking involved.  Just blend all the ingredients and toss in the fridge for a couple hours to firm up.  You may want to blend it longer than I did but I tend to like my soups a little on the thick side.  And, (…I add this hesitantly..) if you really don’t care for Low Fat Greek Yogurt, you can substitute sour cream.  It will taste great but definitely adds some calories.  Just be sure to leave out the honey.  Sometimes though, we just have to go for it, right?

I’m all about limes these days and I loved the zing it added to this soup. I’ve switch my passion for lemons to limes for the moment and there seems to be no end in sight to the possibilities of this zesty little fruit!

What do you do when you have too much fruit on your hands?  I’d love to hear your recipes and suggestions.  Hope your day is a good one. Cheers!
