Chilled Caribbean Red Papaya-Watermelon Soup

Combining my two favorite summer fruits is a no-brainer; it’s the addition of habanero pepper that defines the genius behind ‘sweet-heat’. Whatever the stove’s heat could’ve added to the taste is instead sublimely provided by the habanero pepper’s flavor acting as a catalyst in the midst of summer’s fruit.
1 cup Caribbean Red papaya, diced
1 cup watermelon, diced
½ cup coconut water
2 tbs lime juice
dash of salt
½ tsp cilantro
½ tsp finely diced habanero pepper (optional – for sweet-heat!)

·      In a blender or food processor, combine papaya, watermelon, coconut water, lime juice, salt and cilantro.
·      For a sweet-heat addition, process in finely diced fresh habanero pepper.
·      Chill until ready to serve. Garnish with cilantro.
Serves: 2
