This soup is amazingly refreshing. Not only is it low in calories but it also has the additional benefit of containing ginger, which boosts the immune system.
  • 2 cantaloupe melons, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • Pinch of fleur de sel
  • 1-inch (2.5-cm) piece of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into strips, to garnish
  • Fresh mint leaves, to garnish
  1. Put the melons, oil, ginger, and fleur de sel in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the soup into bowls and garnish with strips of fresh ginger and mint leaves.
Fleur de sel ("flower of salt") is French sea salt. It is very delicate and dissolves instantly. You can get it from (affiliate link) or use salt you have on hand.
