Chilled Cucumber-Cantaloupe Blender Soup

Use Greek yogurt or coconut cream to give this cold soup some body.
Three bowls of chilled cucumber and cantaloupe blender soup.
  • Yield 2 servings
  • Prep Time 10 minutes
  • Cook Time

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped cantaloupe
  • 1 cup chopped English cucumber
  • 2 tbs. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. lime zest
  • 1 tsp. chili paste
  • 1/4 cup plain, full-fat Greek yogurt or coconut cream
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tbs. fresh mint, chopped

Directions

STEP 1
Place cantaloupe, cucumber, lime juice, lime zest, and chili paste in a blender, and blend until smooth.
STEP 2
Pour mixture through a fine-mesh strainer into a large bowl; discard pulp.
STEP 3
Add Greek yogurt or coconut cream and salt, then whisk to combine. Taste — you may want to add another squeeze of lime juice or a pinch of sea salt.
STEP 4
Chill soup for two to three hours. Garnish with fresh mint and serve cold. TIP: The colder your soup is, the less salty it will taste. Adjust seasoning again just before serving.
