Frugal Recipe: Chilled Cantaloupe Soup w/ Lime, Basil, & Mint

…that I just tried out a delicious new recipe? ;)
Actually, the title of this post has more to do with what you’ll find after today’s lunch + recipe, but we’ll get there soon.
I found a recipe the other day for a chilled cantaloupe soup, that was just screaming “summer” to me, so I decided to give it a try today.
First, cube up about 3 cups of cantaloupe.
Then, get the rest of your ingredients ready to add to the blender.
Puree all the ingredients until they’re all smooth, and you’ve got yourself some fruity soup. If you want, you can serve yours all “snazzy-fied” like I did in a wine glass. Hey, we’re classy over here. ;)
Chilled Cantaloupe Soup with Lime, Basil, & Mint
(Original recipe can be found here, courtesy of Soup Chick)
  • 3 cups cubed melon
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/8 tsp ground (powdered) ginger
  • Zest of one lime
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp agave nectar or honey
  • 2-3 mint leaves
  • 2-3 basil leaves (optional, but delicious)
  • A pinch of kosher salt
  • 2-3 Tbsp water if needed to thin the soup to desired consistency
Combine all ingredients except water in a blender, and puree until smooth. Adjust consistency with water, if needed. Serve chilled. ENJOY! :)
