This is a refreshing cold summer soup, made with cucumber, yogurt, honeydew melon, cilantro, and mint. You can use regular yogurt instead of Greek-style, but if you do, add a couple of grams of carbohydrate per serving.

Ingredients

  • 1 large seedless cucumber
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed honeydew melon
  • 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 12 sprigs cilantro, including stems
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

  1. Cut the cucumber into large chunks—about five or six pieces.
  2. Put everything into the blender and blend it up.

Taste. It's going to vary a bit according to the sweetness of the melon, the tartness of the yogurt, etc. You may like more mint or cilantro or salt. Adjust the amounts to your taste.

I like to serve this soup with a few small mint leaves as a garnish and a sprinkling of sea salt over the top.
