Chilled Minted Melon Soup

Chilled Minted Melon Soup

Serves 4 to 6

Serve this refreshing summer soup as a starter or dessert. In mid-summer, when honeydew is at its best, consider omitting the honey since the melon is sure to be extra sweet.

  • 1 cup water
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped mint leaves, more for garnish
  • 1 medium honeydew melon (about 3 pounds), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 cup low-fat milk

Heat water, honey and mint to boiling; remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes. Pour mixture into a blender or food processor; add melon and lime juice. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour into a medium bowl or pitcher; stir in milk. Cover and refrigerate about 3 hours or until chilled. Garnish with additional mint leaves if desired. For a creamy, dreamy dessert, simply substitute ice cream for the milk.
