Chilled Thai Melon ~ Raw Soup 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Following is an example of eating a chilled raw soup, which will actually create some substantial heat inside your body…made possible by the addition of hot chile sauces.

Honeydew melons have similar nutritional benefits of summer and winter squash. Honeydew melons are low in calories and high in their water content. They provide an excellent source of vitamin C and are also a very good source of potassium, copper, and B vitamins (including thiamine, niacin, B6, and pantothenic acid).

Due to their high water content and combination with potassium, honeydew melons are helpful in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels. They also provide several key nutrients that are particularly beneficial for healthy skin.


Ingredients:
2 – cups seeded and diced cantaloupe
2 – cups seeded and diced honeydew melon
2 – cups seeded and diced watermelon
1 – tbls Sriracha hot chili sauce (adjusted according to your personal “heat” preference)
1 – tbls. Sweet chile sauce
1 – cup unsweetened coconut milk
3 – limes (juiced)
1 – tbls. Minced ginger
2 – tbls. Chopped fresh cilantro
1 – tbls. Chopped fresh basil
3 – tbls. Chopped fresh mint
1 – tbls. Chopped raw peanuts








Directions:
In a food processor blender, puree the melons, sriracha and sweet chile sauces, coconut milk, lime juice, ginger, cilantro, basil and 2 tbls. of the mint. Strain and chill. Garnish with the remaining mint and the chopped peanuts.


Notes: This is seriously yummy!

Health in the News
Have you ever read or heard about new and amazing health research findings? Be careful. Don't immediately accept them as proven facts. A single research study does not always provide reliable evidence. Continue to look for more studies. Are most of them for or against the early report?
