Love Cold Soup

Cool down this Summer with soup! You can use fresh canteloupe for our chilled Canteloupe Soup recipe. It's isn't much, but if you do not want to use dark rum, you can use half a teaspoon of rum extract.

If you make any of our recipes, let us know what you think on Facebook, or in our message forums!
