CHILLED AND SPICY CANTALOUPE SOUP

Spiced Cantaloupe Soup I always look forward to eating melons in the summer. They are refreshing, delicious and hydrating, not to mention how healthy they are for your vitality and weight loss goals.

I’ve written in previous blogs about my stand on fruit….it’s great for you and has fiber built in so it’s not sugar bomb going into your body (diabetics should consult with their physician when adding fruit into their diet). Fruit is full of anti-aging and energy supplying nutrients. Plus, the satisfying sweetness helps fight off the candy bar cravings that seem to hit at our weak moments.

When I was a teenager, my family had a recipe for cantaloupe soup and I remember it being so good as we ate it on the back porch during the hot summer months in Georgia. I wanted to recreate the recipe for you Paige style…simple and delicious!   Enjoy!
