Chilled Watermelon/Lime Soup

Chilled Watermelon/Lime Soup Topped with Basil -- Seriously Soupy

Who doesn't love watermelon in the summer? This tasty/crunchy fruit is not only refreshing but it is packed with heaping dose of the good stuff our bodies needs (vitamin C, vitamin A, lycopene, etc) --  believed to protect us from inflammation, colon cancer, arthritis, etc. Basically, it's a perfect fruit (at least in my eyes), which is why it was time to mix up the taste a bit and turn it into a soup. I decided to make it a salted watermelon soup with fresh basil, lemons and lime and water. Simple enough and it only took 10 minutes to prep for a new take on the beloved summer treat. Enjoy!

Chilled Watermelon/Lime Soup
1/2 of a watermelon
1 bunch of fresh basil
1 bunch of fresh lavender 
1/2 cup of water
2 tablespoons of lime juice
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
pinch of sea salt

Cut a medium-sized watermelon in half. Cut up and add to a bowl with the lemon juice, lime juice, basil, lavender and salt. Let chill in the fridge for 20 minutes. Add the mixture, along with some water into a blender. Liquefy the watermelon mixture and pour into a bowl. Let chill in the freezer for about an hour and serve cold.
