This recipe is from More Vitality Cooking, 1997, send to me in a recent cookbook swap! Here ripe melons are the key to a very tasty & healthy soup! Preparation time does not include the 4 hours needed for the pureed melons to chill!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice, deseed & peel melons, then cut them into chunks, placing each melon in separate bowls.
  2. In a blender puree cantaloupe, then pour back into its bowl.
  3. Repeat for the honeydew, keeping each pureed melon separate.
  4. Stir 2 to 4 teaspoons of lime juice into each puree.
  5. Refrigerate until well chilled, at least 4 hours, but no longer than 24 hours.
  6. To serve, pour some of each puree into a separate measuring cup, then SIMULTANEOUSLY pour each measured amount into opposite sides of the same wide soup bowl. DO NOT MIX.
  7. If desired, add a little yogurt to center of each bowl & swirl it a little between the two purees!

Wonderful light dessert or palate cleanser! Lends to handsome presentation and easily halved for 2 servings; I used tall biscuit cutters to form concentric circles with ease. We like lime juice, so I used the larger amount suggested. For garnish, I used orange zest and lime zest. Men, impress your wife with this for Mothers Day breakfast. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Sydney Mike; I have been looking forward to trying this experiment. Made for March 2009 Veg*n Swap.
