The next couple of days are going to be extremely hot in Boston. Swelteringly hot. Too hot to cook!
I decided to try a recipe for a cold fruit soup. I found this fun Mix and Match Melon Recipe from Martha Stewart. It looks refreshing, fairly healthy (with the yogurt) and I think the kids will like it.
Recipe (from Mix and Match Melon Soup, Martha Stewart)....
1/2 large honeydew, cut into chunks
2 t. fresh lime juice
1/4 c. sparkling wine or ginger ale (they recommend Moscato d'Asti)
1/4 c fresh mint leaves
1/2 t salt
1 cantaloupe, cut into chunks
1/3 c. creme fraiche or plain yogurt
2 T honey
1 t fresh lemon juice
Put honeydew, lime, sparkling wine, mint and 1/4 t salt in food processor and blend until smooth. Chill.
Next batch! Put cantaloupe, yogurt, honey, lemon juice and 1/4 t salt in food processor and blend until smooth. Chill.
To serve...put honeydew soup in a bowl, and spoon some of the cantaloupe soup on top, and vice versa. I would garnish with pretty edible flowers, too.
Can't wait to try this....yum!
