Metabolic Medical Center Recipes

Serves 6  Chill Time 1 hour

Honeydew, cantaloupe, musk melon or watermelon will work well. Find the freshest melon by smelling the stem end. The melon (with the exception of a watermelon) should smell sweet and fresh. It will smell how it tastes. This recipe is for patients in a Transitional Weight Loss Program (Nutriplus, Balance Your Pyramid) or on a Maintenance Program. This IS NOT a recipe for patients still losing weight. If you have a question about what you may or may not eat on your personalized program, call your Metabolic office.

Ingredients:
1 (2 lb.) honeydew melon, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 Cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
1/4 Cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
2 tsp. Splenda
1/8 tsp. salt
6 lime slices (garnish)
6 thinly sliced fresh mint leaves (garnish)

Directions:

  1. Combine 1 cup honeydew melon, 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, fresh lime juice, and Splenda in a blender; process until smooth. Add remaining melon and salt; process until smooth.
  2. Transfer melon mixture to a bowl; cover and chill at least 1 hour.
  3. Ladle about 3/4 cup soup into each of 6 bowls; garnish each serving with 1 thin lime slice and 1 thinly sliced mint leaf.

Recommended for patients on  Nutriplus (Balance Your Pyramid) Program or Maintenance Program.
