Watermelon soup is a delicious warm soup. In just 10 minutes using watermelon juice, lime juice and ginger you have a tasty healthy soup!
Yes, it’s the last day of February and I’m giving you a watermelon recipe because I like to go against the blog rules of only putting recipes on your site that are “in season”. To be honest, watermelon can always be in season if you freeze your Summer watermelons. If you ever have a watermelon that you think you can’t eat completely, don’t let it go to waste! Just chop it up, or turn it into watermelon juice, throw in the freezer and you’ll have it for months to enjoy! That way it can be Winter and you can enjoy this Hot Watermelon Soup!
This Watermelon Soup makes me happy because I just want to grab my sunhat and a shovel and run to the garden. I have been getting the garden shivers lately. You know the garden shivers, right? It’s when you’re so excited for the garden season that every time you think about what you’re going to grow you just start to shake with excitement. I’m not a doctor but I will confirm that garden shivers are not dangerous at all, instead they cause happiness. When I eat this Watermelon Soup, either in the Summer or the Winter, it makes me think of the garden and all the great memories that come along with it (not to mention the power of saying “I grew this!”). So I like to consider it a happy soup!
The Watermelon Soup is very simple to make with only 4 ingredients: Watermelon Juice, Lime Juice, Ginger and Salt. That’s it. And even better, it only takes 15 minutes to make! What you’re left with is a silky smooth soup that’s bright in color and tastes delicious.
Enjoy this Hot Watermelon Soup!
