Watermelon soup is a delicious and light summer dish. We added fresh lime juice for tang and honey for extra sweetness. If your watermelon is good and sweet, omit the honey. For a pretty presentation, garnish with watermelon balls and fresh mint sprigs.
4 cups seeded watermelon cubes
1/3 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon honey (optional)
1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt
How to Make It
Process first 5 ingredients and honey, if desired, in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Cover and chill 1 hour. Serve in individual bowls with a dollop of yogurt.
I served this soup at a brunch and got rave reviews. It looked beautiful in cut glass bowls with a dollap of yogurt and a spring of mint. I used fresh grated ginger--be careful though--fresh ginger is strong.
