Cantaloupe Soup

This may seem weird, but it's not. I've made a similar recipe before and it tastes so refreshing and light! Perfect for hot summer days. You should try it.

Chilled Cantaloupe Soup

Source:, adapted

Serves:  6

6 cups chopped cantaloupe, about 1 (4 pound) melon
1 1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 sprig fresh mint

  1. Place all ingredients, except for the mint, in a large bowl and stir.
  2. Place half the mixture in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour soup into a pitcher, and repeat with remaining mixture.
  3. Taste and whisk in more cinnamon, agave nectar or even lemon juice if desired. It should taste sweet and tart, with only a hint of cinnamon. Chill the soup until ready to serve.
  4. Remove the mint leaves from the stem (discard) and stack the leaves on top of each other. Roll lengthwise into a tight "cigar." Slice crosswise into thin strips.
  5. Pour the chilled soup into six soup bowls.
  6. Garnish each with a sprinkle of shredded mint and serve.
