update 8/14

i pureed a mess of cantaloupe with ginger juice, half a ripe nectarine, half a lemon’s juice, and a handful of frozen mixed berries. i think the orange juice must really lend a sunniness to it, because it seemed to be missing something. i think next time, i will add fresh mint and be sure to not skip the oj. it’s more of a drink than a soup. i prefer the blueberry oatmeal smoothie, but this is a good way to use up all that melon from the garden!
