“This is from The Spoonriver Cookbook. Spoonriver is a restaurant in Minneapolis. Of this recipe, cookbook author Brenda Langton says "there is nothing like the taste sensation of a really good cantaloupe or honeydew. As we all know, it's a real bummer to come home with a bland one. Choose a melon that has an aroma and is slightly soft at the bottom. This soup blends that wonderful melon flavor with a hint of mint, a great combination. This is a good first course for a summer brunch".”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the melon into chunks, reserving the juices.
  2. Put the melon and its juices into a blender along with the apple juice and lime juice and blend until smooth.
  3. Add the mint for just a few seconds at the end.
  4. Pour the soup into a bowl and whisk in the yogurt.
  5. Taste the soup and correct the seasonings. You may want to add more mint or perhaps a little honey.
