POP Kids' Recipe

Watermelon Soup - Surprise your family with this fun recipe!  

4 cups seeded watermelon
2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
2 tablespoons honey

2 cups cantaloupe, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 cups cucumber, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

Blend the watermelon, lemon or lime juice, and honey in a blender until well mixed.  Chill for an hour.

Dice the cantaloupe and cucumbers into one inch cubes.  Or, you can use your free veggie cutter from the market to make unique shapes like flowers.  Did you get a veggie cutter?  Come to the market to sign up for the POP Club and you will receive one in your welcome gift bag!

Gently pour the chilled soup over the shaped fruit.  Optionally, garnish with some fresh mint.  Enjoy!
