Chilled Watermelon Soup served in a frosty glass !

Chilled watermelon soup served in frosted cups! The heat wave continues in our neck of the woods, so this is a perfect first course. My husband remarked that the little avocado balls I ‘floated’ in the soup look like green olives, reminding him of martinis. Hey ! Whatever floats your boat, you know! One taste of the creamy, foamy, chilled soup and he was hooked;)

And did I mention that there is no need to turn the stove on, at all? Needless to say, that is why I concocted this recipe 🙂 It also is helpful that this soup can be made ahead and chilled!

The super sweet watermelons in the market now are perfect for this soup and the delicate seasonings let the flavor of the watermelon to shine through. It also has such a nice foamy texture when blended with the coconut cream! The avocado balls add a very nice contrast in both taste and texture.

Do try it this weekend and you will know what I mean.
