Chilled Watermelon Soup

Its peak season for summer fruits like peach, apricot, watermelon here...Watermelon is not only great on a hot summer day, this delectable thirst-quencher may also help quench the inflammation that contributes to conditions like asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, and arthritis.Sweet, juicy watermelon is actually packed with some of the most important antioxidants in nature. Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C and a very good source of vitamin A, notably through its concentration of beta-carotene. Pink watermelon is also a source of the potent carotenoid antioxidant, lycopene. These powerful antioxidants travel through the body neutralizing free radicals.Watermelon can be either as salad with cucumber, tomatoes, can also prepare as jams, pies,fresh juices etc..Here is a simple soup made with watermelon,orange fresh juice and mixed fruits soaked for atleast two hours and served chilled..Such a refreshing soup while its too hot can be very served as dessert..


2cups Watermelon (chopped)
1cup Fresh orange juice
1/2tsp Honey
1no Banana (chopped)
10nos Grapes
1/4cup Orange (chopped)

Puree the watermelon pieces with fresh orange juice and honey..cover the watermelon puree and chill for 2hours...While serving add the chopped banana pieces, grapes and chopped orange pieces to the watermelon puree and serve immediately...

Refreshing soup!
