I used to make this chilled soup during the summers when I worked with my mother cooking at the Wichita Art Museum. I talked the managers of the restaurant into serving it as an alternative choice to salad with lunch. I never failed to sell all of it because it is so refreshing and tasty. Used to like to serve it with either sliced baked ham and apple filled crepes or with the curried chicken and asparagus crepes. Yummy!

There is nothing like chilled soup on a hot summer day. This cantaloupe soup recipe is so fruity and fresh, it's like a liquid dessert. We used vanilla yogurt in ours and it was perfect. Impress your family and friends and serve this soup at your next cookout or dinner party. Very yummy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Chilled Cantaloupe, Mango and Peach Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel, seed and cut up all the fruit into chunks. Zest and juice orange and juice lemon.
  2. Place all fruits, the zest, and liquids (juice and honey) into bowl of large food processor and process until smooth. If you have a small processor or blender, puree the fruits in batches, mixing them together in a large bowl after processing.
  3. Put the puree through a food mill or fine sieve if desired to obtain the smoothest texture. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
  4. When ready to serve, ladle into shallow serving bowls or cups dividing into equal portions. Swirl in 1 to 2 tbsp of your choice of dairy product. Top with mint leaves and a quick grind of fresh nutmeg.
  5. For special occasions, use a sweet white dessert wine in place of the grape juice. Note: Prep time does not include chilling time.
