Weight Loss Watermelon Gazpacho

Too hot for soup? Not for this cold and refreshing watermelon gazpacho! When Sammy made this weight loss recipe two weeks ago I couldn't eat enough. After bragging about it to my personal training clients, I'm finally sharing it with you! Make it before it snows again!

INGREDIENTS:


-6 cups cubed seeded watermelon
-2 English (hothouse style) cucumbers, chopped
-2 red bell peppers, chopped
-1 onion, chopped
-1/2 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
-1/4 cup lemon juice
-2 tablespoons olive oil
-3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
-2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
-3 tablespoons honey
-1/2 cup pineapple juice
-20 small mint leaves

DIRECTIONS:


Reserve 20 small pieces of watermelon for garnish. Working in batches, place the remaining watermelon, the cucumbers, red bell peppers, onion, jalapeno pepper, lemon juice, olive oil, 3 tablespoons of fresh mint, the ginger, honey, and pineapple juice into a blender, and blend for about 30 seconds per batch. The mixture should be well blended but retain some texture. Pour into a large pitcher or bowl, and refrigerate 1 hour. Serve in bowls, and garnish each bowl with a couple of chunks of the retained watermelon and 2 small mint leaves.
