Cantaloupe, Strawberry, Coconut Soup Recipe

This is another really easy to make and delicious soup that everyone loves once they taste it. In this soup you use cantaloupe, strawberries, and coconut.

Your going to need to make this soup in your blender or food processor. This way you can get all of your ingredients pureed up fine. Once I make this soup I like to serve it in chilled soup bowls that I set on a napkin on a chilled saucer. And I always serve Captains Wafers with this delicious soup.

Ingredients For Your Soup

1. Two Cups Chopped Fresh Strawberries.

2. Four Cups Chopped Cantaloupe.

3. One Teaspoon Stevia.

4. One Cup Canned Coconut Milk.

5. One Level Teaspoon Coconut Extract.

Put all of your ingredients into your blender or food processor and puree everything very well together. Now you will want to chill your soup in the refrigerator until it is very cold before you serve it. You can serve it as a soup like I said in chilled bowls or you can drink it like a smoothie. Either way its delicious.

The Health Benefits Of Strawberries

In case you don't know strawberries are one of the superfoods that everyone should be eating. They are sweet and delicious and they are nutrient rich and packed with antioxidants like Vitamin C. One cup of strawberries can give you all of your daily requirement of Vitamin C.

The antioxidants in strawberries can help to prevent cataracts. Vitamin C also helps to keep your eyes healthy.

Strawberries are also said to slow down and even stop cancer in some cases. Substances in strawberries are said to have anti-cancer properties. And anything that is supposed to get rid of cancer is a wonderful food for me.

If you eat foods that are rich in Vitamin C the antioxidants will help you to have beautiful skin. Strawberries for years have been said to prevent wrinkles and recent studies say that yes strawberries may indeed prevent wrinkles. So lets all get busy eating strawberries.

Strawberries are also said to fight bad cholestrol. Strawberries contain lots of heart healthy boosters. Antioxidants and phytochemicals found in strawberries also help to prevent inflammation of the bodies systems and in the bodies joints also.

The potassium found in strawberries can help to prevent high blood pressure and may help to keep your blood pressure at a healthy level.


Cantaloupe Strawberry Soup Recipe

Here's a recipe your sure to enjoy. I made it at the Florida Cracker Cafe while I was the Chef there and it would sell out very quickly. It really is a great easy to make cold soup and you really need Captains Wafers to eat with this soup for the best flavor.

Make Fried Peanut Butter Sandwiches With Your Soup

Here is another great place to serve fried peanut butter sandwiches. Just click that link for the recipe. Let me tell you there is nothing better than chilled cantaloupe strawberry soup served with a fried peanut butter sandwich. For a extra treat add sliced bananas to your peanut butter sandwiches before you fry them. You can dust your fried peanut butter sandwiches with a little powdered sugar before you serve them. And I bet you the kids will love them.

Cut Out Shapes From Your Sandwiches With A Cookie Cutter

I have in the past made peanut butter and banana sandwiches and cut the centers out with cookie cutters so you end up with a sandwich shaped like a Santa Claus or an Easter Bunny. I know there's some waste when doing the sandwiches this way but the kids will love it.

For Your Cantaloupe Strawberry Soup You Will Need

1. 1 Ripe Cantaloupe peeled and seeds removed.

2. 1 Quart Plain Yogurt.

3. 12 Capped Strawberries.

4. 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon for garnish.

5. 1/2 Strawberry to garnish the top of each bowl of soup.

Blend All Your Ingredients Well In A Blender Or Food Processor

You want to place all your ingredients into your blender or food processor and blend or chop very well. You want to make sure everything gets well chopped up. Now place in a plastic container with a lid and chill at least four hours before serving. Really chilling overnight is better if you can.

Be Sure To Chill Your Bowls Before You Serve Your Soup In Them

When your ready to serve take your soup and place it into bowls you have had in the refrigerator for at least four hours. The chilled bowls are very important. Fill your bowls with your soup and sprinkle the top of each bowl of soup with ground cinnamon. Garnish the top of each bowl of soup with half of a strawberry cut in half.

Chilled Cantaloupe Strawberry Soup Is Oh So Delicious

Your probably thinking but I don't think anyone at my house would eat Cantaloupe Strawberry Soup. Well I guarantee you that if you can get a bowl of this soup in front of them they will love it and be trying to get you to make it all the time.

Garnish Your Bowls Of Soup With Strawberries

Kids especially love this soup. Put several split in half strawberries on top of the soup and be sure to serve it in a chilled bowl. I like to serve soups like this in glass bowls because they will chill down a lot faster than bowls made out of other material.
