watermelonsoup

It’s August in New York and it’s really hot!

When the weather tops 90 degrees, it is really important to stay hydrated (especially if you are working, exercising, or otherwise spending time outside) and here is a great watermelon soup recipe for doing just that.

This watermelon soup with cucumber, lime and cilantro is cool and delicious. Watermelon and cucumber both have a very high water content, so this is ideal as a light snack before or after exercise. It also makes a quick healthy snack in between meals or a nice start to a summer meal.

    I have made this particular watermelon soup numerous times. I’ve tried more complex varities but the extra work doesn ‘t make a difference.

    Refreshing and healthy!

    I have heard of watermelon soup before but it is usually sweet and not savory. I love how you mixed it up here!
