Chilled Melon Soup with Kiwi Salsa

This is a lite, sweet treat that is very easy to make and makes quite a bit of soup!  My girls loved the kiwi salsa, it was their favorite part. The original recipe called for watermelon in the salsa, which would be so pretty, but I didn’t have any so we used bits of cantaloupe instead. We poured leftover soup into Popsicle molds for a refreshing frozen treat.

Chilled Melon Soup with Kiwi Salsa
{adapted from “If It Makes You Healthy“}
Serves 6
1/2 cup diced, cantaloupe (or watermelon)
1 kiwi, peeled and diced
2 good-sized mint leaves, chopped (optional)
1 medium sized ripe cantaloupe, peeled, seeded and chopped (about 3 cups)
6 ounces plain dairy or soy yogurt
6 ounces peach or vanilla dairy or soy yogurt
1/2 cup orange juice
11/2 tsp agave nectar or honey
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1. In a small glass bowl, combine the diced melon, kiwi and mint.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
2. In a blender, blend half of the cantaloupe, half the yogurts, and 1/4 cup of the orange juice on medium speed until very smooth.  Transfer to a plastic or glass container.  Repeat with the remaining half of these ingredients.
3. Whisk in the agave nectar and salt until all soup is well mixed.  Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.  Serve garnished with the Kiwi salsa.
