Chilled Cantaloupe Soup

Here's another fun way to get your full rainbow of fruits and vegetables each day!  Next time you need a little something orange, try this easy cold fruit soup.  Somehow, when the boys eat fruit that doesn't look like fruit, they think of it as a sweet treat rather than something healthy to eat.  Works for me!

This recipe couldn't be easier to make... just throw everything in the blender.  Eat it right away, or chill it for a little bit to give it time for the flavors to mellow.  Just give the mixture a stir before you serve it, as it tends to separate.

Chilled Cantaloupe Soup

1 ripe cantaloupe
1/2 cup rice milk
2 Tbsp maple syrup
juice of 1 lime

Cut the rind away from the cantalope and dice it.  Combine it with the rest of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.  Serve cold as a soup, or in a glass as a smoothie.

  1. Hi Lisa

    What a great way to get your children to eat more fruit! I wonder if it works with husbands too? Mmm.

    I like to make icy cold cantaloupe milk in summer. It's really delicious if you can find a fragrant piece of fruit. Just take a cantaloupe (we call them rock melons in Australia) cold from the refrigerator and whiz in a blender. So simple and so good!

  2. Hi Kelleigh! It definitely works with husbands... I almost didn't have enough left for the photo once he had a taste :) He was actually in Australia last week on business... said the weather was getting quite nice... springtime now, right? Thanks for taking a minute to comment :) ~ Lisa

  3. This is such an interesting recipe - it would make a fantastic appetizer at a dinner party too! I love cantaloupe, so it's perfect for me. Thank you for sharing it with the Gallery of Favorites.

  4. I just harvested lots of cantaloupes and have been looking for some more ways to use it up. Thanks for sharing your recipes with the Hearth and Soul Hop.

  5. how wonderful is this...I have a cantaloupe bisque on my recipes page that I have wanted to make for a long time. This is great!!!
