Ingredients

1 large cantaloupe (about 3 lb.)
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup orange juice
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint, plus small sprigs for garnish, optional

Preparation

1. Halve melon, scoop out seeds and remove rind. Cut flesh into large chunks. (You should have about 6 cups.)

2. Working in batches if necessary, combine cantaloupe, honey and orange juice in a blender. Pulse or blend until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl, cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 2 hours.

3. Just before serving, briskly whisk soup and stir in mint. Serve very cold, garnished with sprigs of mint, if desired.
