Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

This is a wonderful chilled soup that I had a version at Sonnenberg Gardens. I wished I had made it during the hot days of winter – but it really is good any time. Plus it is healthy with a lot of great ingredients combined together with a wonderful flavor profile! You feel a bit healthier after eating it!! For this version I used yogurt to have a thinner consistency similar to a soup. A Greek yogurt could be substituted if you don’t mind a thicker consistency. As always it is fun to experiment with different ingredients and this recipe should get you started! Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

1 Melon, deseeded, de-rined, and chopped
Strawberries – about a dozen and a few for garnish
2 cups Yogurt, plain
1 Half-pint light cream
1 tbsp Nutmeg
1 tbsp Ground Cardamom
3 – 6 tbsp Honey
Basil

Place chopped melon and strawberries in a food processor and blend until desired texture. Pour into a large bowl that has a cover to allow you to store it in the refrigerator. Blend in the honey, nutmeg, and ground cardamom. Then add the yogurt, light cream, and blend. Do a taste test because you might want to add more spices and honey. I like to serve with extra strawberries on top with basil. You could blend some basil into the soup or even use mint.

    I’m crazy about cold soups but now that the weather is cooler I will put this recipe away until spring. Thanks
