Three Cool Summer Soups

Below I have included 3 recipes for cool summer soups that are fruit based. This is to give you two things:

1. A choice to make, depending on which you happen to like best. 
2. A comparison of how each is thrown together

Once you compare, you should substitute in your own fruit and pick the ingredients that make your mouth absolutely water!!

Recipe #1:
You'll Need:
  • 2 (16 ounce) cans pears, drained with juices or syrup reserved
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons Poire William
  • mint sprigs to garnish

Take out and thinly slice 1 pear half. Reserve to use as garnish.
In food processor, puree pears with yogurt and lemon juice. Add enough reserved juice or syrup to make a thick soup, up to about 1/2 cup. Add spice and/or liqueur, and process just to blend.
Pour into bowl, and place in freezer for 20 minutes, or refrigerate about 1 hour until chilled. Ladle into shallow soup bowls, and garnish with reserved sliced pear and mint, if desired.

Recipe #2
  • 1 cantaloupe - peeled, seeded and cubed
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Peel, seed, and cube the cantaloupe.
Place cantaloupe and 1/2 cup orange juice in a blender or food processor; cover, and process until smooth. Transfer to large bowl. Stir in lime juice, cinnamon, and remaining orange juice. Cover, and refrigerate for at least one hour. Garnish with mint if desired.

Recipe #3
You'll Need:
  • 2 cups 1/4-inch-diced fresh mangoes
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 seedless cucumber, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 small onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, basil or cilantro
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

What To Do:
Process mangoes, orange juice and oil in a blender or food processor until pureed. Transfer to a medium bowl, along with remaining ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve. (Can be made several hours before serving.)
