Before you click away because this is something so completely unheard of on a sweets website, hear me out!
In my daily life I’m pretty much as far as I can be from vegan – eggs and bacon for breakfast, turkey sandwiches or ramen for lunch, meat and potato type dinners….and of course baked good after baked good.
But all of us need some balance in our lives so I figured this was a good place to start.
Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits. I love it. It totally reminds me of being 5 and having seed spitting contests in the summer.
After a bit of consulting with friends on Twitter I was inspired to make a soup with gazpacho type flavors. After ripping through all my cupboards I realized I didn’t have anything gazpacho like!
So I stuck to what I know – sweets.
This watermelon soup is a good start or end to any meal. I could even eat this as a snack on a hot day.
For the non-vegans out there this would be good as a main dish component with grilled shrimp or fish and a light salad.
I can see myself making this many more times over the next few seasons. It’s quick, takes very little clean up, and you feel good after slurping it all down!
