Chilled Melon Soup Recipe
- 2 cups chopped cantaloupe
- 2 cups. chopped honeydew melon
- 2/3 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup lime juice (2 limes)
- 6-8 ice cubes
I pureed the melons separately and poured the two halves in the bowl separately and tried swirling it with a knife. It ended up as kind of a yin-yang thing. I put it in the freezer for awhile to get it really cold and it was delicious. The hint of citrus kept it from being too sweet, and made it a little tangy.
