Cantaloupe Strawberry and Coconut Gazpacho #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

Happy Sunday to you!!  Today for #SundaySupper we had to make a dish that was free of everything!  Meaning it should or could be gluten-free, vegetarian, sugar-free ect…  So today I thought I would share with you a simple, refreshing summer soup that fits all categories and that is perfect to accompany any meal!

Cantaloupe Strawberry Coconut Gazpacho

This is my Cantaloupe Strawberry and Coconut Gazpacho.  I decided on this recipe because I got two little cantaloupes in my CSA box last week, and they were standing on their last legs.  I knew I needed to make something with them and fast!  I wasn’t sure exactly what I was going to do with them, but I thought originally making a cantaloupe soda, so I processed my cantaloupe in the blender and it turned into a wonderful thick liquid in a matter of seconds.  This was one sweet and fresh cantaloupe.  I took a sip and thought, hmmmmm I bet strawberries would be good in here.  In went the strawberries.  Once I took one more taste, I thought that this is so thick it would make a wonderful summer soup.  So the idea of gazpacho was born.

Cantaloupe Strawberry Coconut Gazpacho

Since my Husband doesn’t like seeds from strawberries, I decided to strain the seeds from the fruit.  It made it all that much creamier, but the only thing about doing this, is I lost about 1/2 cup of my mixture.  To make up the difference for lost fruit, I added some coconut milk to it, which made it creamier and while I was at it, I added a pinch of coconut extract.  Amazing!  I would have never of thought of coconut and cantaloupe together, but it is pretty darn good!

Cantaloupe Strawberry Coconut Gazpacho

This little soup is perfect for a hot summers day, plus it makes for great use of  melon that needs to be used.  Not only is this dish healthy, full of vitamins and nutrients, but it is also gluten-free, vegan and sugar-free!  The only sugar in this dish is the natural sugar from the fruit!  So grab a spoon and enjoy!!

  1. This gazpacho looks so delicious and refreshing for the hot weather we are having. I don’t use cantaloupes nearly enough as I should in recipes-looking forward to trying this!

  4. Fantastic idea to add coconut milk for creaminess…and flavor. Looks so cool, and refreshing. I’d probably add rum and pour it into a glass, though ;P

  5. Yum…I can’t wait to make this next time I pick up a pretty cantaloupe at the farmers market. BTW…I had a cat named Spot who went NUTS for cantaloupe! He could be at the back of the house, and he’d know when we were cutting one up…he’d come running, meowing the entire way.

    What a perfectly fresh, beautiful and delicious looking dessert! Isn’t it fun to see creativity at work while making recipes? It turned out lovely!

  8. How creative! I always wonder what to do with the extra cantaloupe because when I find those perfect ripe sweet ones at the market I buy way too many for the two of us. Lovely first course to start out a summer meal.

    • I’m like you Renee, I had two ripe cantaloupes and I wasn’t sure what I should do with them, and I had to think of something fast because they were not going to last much longer. Now I have two more melons on the counter that need to be turned into something. All these melons! :)

  9. Gazpacho is, hands down, my favorite cold soup. A dessert one with summer fruits is a brilliant twist Jennifer! I love cantaloupe, just need to get them perfectly ripe and sweet.

  12. Hi Jennifer! Very glad I found your blog tonight :-) I love the thought of this cool and refreshing soup. Strawberries and coconut will always be a favorite flavor combination of mine! Thank you for sharing!

  13. Excellent recipe. It’s strawberry season in full swing here in NorCal. I once had an heirloom melon soup with creme fraiche in Calistoga one time and I’ll never forget how refreshing it was. Blend on!

  14. I wonder if I can pass this of as “Princess soup” to my daughter! :-) It’s beautiful!

  26. I would never have thought of coconut and cantaloupe together either, but this sounds like a perfect dessert – or breakfast – to me!

  27. Oh yum, yum, yum. Cantaloupes are finally in season so I can’t wait to give this a try.

  28. Jennifer, excellent call on the coconut milk – it goes well with everything! This gazpacho would be ridiculously refreshing on a hot summer day. My mom makes a sweet soup from papaya and it’s always been one of my favourite things to eat (although she doesn’t puree the fruit, she leaves it in big chunks). I can’t wait to try this. Do you think it would freeze well into popsicles? Mmm…I volunteer you to try it, lol ;)
