Total Time

Prep: 10 min. + chilling

A friend in New York shared the recipe for this chilled melon soup that's pleasantly spiced with cinnamon. Most people are skeptical when I describe it, but after one spoonful, they're hooked. It's easy to prepare, pretty to serve and so refreshing. -Margaret McNeil, Memphis, Tennessee


  • 1 medium cantaloupe, peeled, seeded and cubed
  • 2 cups orange juice, divided
