Cold Cantaloupe Soup

  I genuinely can't imagine anything more refreshing and inviting on a warm day than Cantaloupe Soup.  Not only is this the easiest recipe in the world, but it gives the impression of something much fancier!  It would make a wonderful first course to a meal served outdoors! 
  Here are a few tips in purchasing a Cantaloupe.  First choose cantaloupes that are heavy for their size, smell sweet, and when pressed yield slightly at the end it blossomed. Avoid cantaloupes with soft spots or ones that have a jagged appearance this usually means they were picked when they were not ripe. 
Remember...The cantaloupe soup will only be as good as the cantaloupe!

Ingredients:

1 ripe cantaloupe
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
3/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup vanilla soy yogurt (you can substitute regular, Greek or rice)

Garnish with a dollop of your choice of yogurt. Then include the optional Mint, Pansy's, Snapdragons... be creative!!!

Method:

Place all ingredients except for the garnish in a blender or Vitamix and serve! So Easy (as salt and pepper...he,he,he!)
Wow!  That was yummy!
