Watermelon Jalapeño and Lemon Cold Soup

Watermelon is a sweet and cooling food. It is great for the Pitta dosha and very refreshing on hot summer days. Jalapeños add heat to this soup, making the watermelon accessible for the Vatta and Kapha doshas. You only need a few minutes to blend this soup. The bonus of blending is that, unlike juicing, the healthy, filling fibers remain.


1 small watermelon (6 cups of large chunks)
3 tsp of lemon juice
2 small jalapeño chillies, cut into 1 inch pieces
3 fresh mint leaves
1/2 tsp salt

Place half of the watermelon in a blender and pulse until chunky. Keep adding the watermelon and the rest of the ingredients.

Refrigerate until cold, approximately 1 hour. Stir well and garnish the soup with thinly sliced jalapeños, if desired.
