Author Notes: It's hot down here, the kind of weather that cries out for chilled soups, lots of sunscreen, and afternoons by the pool with a good book ... (dang work ruins everything :-) - aargersiaargersi

Food52 Review: I love chilled soup during the summer and this refreshing recipe has been added to my collection. Having forgotten to buy lemon yogurt, I used plain Greek yogurt and some Meyer lemon zest instead. Be certain to find a really ripe, luscious melon -- mine was mediocre but still worked OK. Aargersi advises us to chill the soup well and also the bowls, that's a great tip. I used a processor instead of a blender so no need to strain the soup. Thumbs up! - LiztheChefLizthechef

Serves 2 bowls

  • 1 cup English cucumber - peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup ripe honeydew melon, peeled seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut water (I used Zico)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon yogurt
  • 2 mint leaves
  • paper thin slices of peeled cucumber and chopped mint for garnish
  1. Blend the cucumber, melon, yogurt and coconut water until smooth, then pour through a strainer to remove any lumps. Put in the fridge to chill.
  2. Chill 2 bowls. Stir the soup back together (it will separate a little) and pour into the bowls. Top each with thin slices of cucumber and mint and serve. That's all there is to it!!

I can help get the photo to your recipe! I just downloaded and then uploaded the photo, but please note that this is Liz's photo. When you download, then upload you wind up getting your name on the photo. Would be happy to delete it if you can retrieve it.

This is good stuff! I used coconut yogurt to make it vegan, it worked well.

Oh good to know! Have never tried coconut yogurt but it sounds yum. I am making it for lunch today - I am out of lemon yogurt so I am going to try peach ...

Your recipe looks and sounds so refreshing and wonderful, I saved the recipe; however living in the Pacific NW we are having unusual cooler weather, it is hard to tell that summer is on the way, in fact, reading all these cool refreshing summertime recipes makes me cold....brrrrr! I will definately pull this recipe out when the hot weather gets here.

Central Market :-) I bet Trader Joes has it - it's gaining in popularity!!!

This looks so refreshing and I'm dying to try coconut water. Would you serve this as a starter or dessert - or both?!

I think a starter ... it's very lightly sweet so (to me anyhow) less in the dessert category. The recipe says 2 bowls but, um, I ate both of them :-)
