Cold Cantaloupe & Yogurt Soup

What’s great about summertime, besides sunny beach days and rainy weekends that are just made for reading good books is the natural loss of appetite that happens! (It’s the opposite in winter for me, lol) A nice soup or salad and on a hot day like today, is all I need for dinner, besides maybe an iced coffee to end the meal. (I love them, a little too much.) This soup combines ripe cantaloupe, cucumber and creamy tangy Greek yogurt into a quick, refreshing yet filling treat. Enjoy!

  • 1/2 a ripe cantaloupe, scooped out and roughly chopped, include all of the juice!
  • 1/4 peeled seedless cucumber, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • fresh course ground pepper
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • lemon thyme for garnish

Blend the cantaloupe, cucumber, honey, Greek yogurt, ground pepper and sea salt with an immersion blender or regular blender. This makes 4 servings. Garnish each bowl with lemon thyme leaves or pass a small bowl around. A great substitute for the lemon thyme would be chopped mint leaves. Great served ice cold!
