"Fruit Soup"

We took this recipe (Honeydew & Lime Soup) from Good Housekeeping:
1 honeydew, chilled
1/4 c fresh lime juice
1/4 c loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
1 tsp jalepeno hot sauce
salt


And did this instead:
1 honeydew melon
1 c cantelope
5 fresh mint leaves
1/4 c fresh lime juice
1 cup diced, fresh strawberries (next time we'll try diced mango)
Put all (except strawberries) in a blender and puree. Chill and top with strawberries and some mint chiffonades. 6-year-old Abigail helped make this and named it "fruit soup". This seems like a good way to keep an overripe melon from going to waste-alot of times I have gotten a melon that tastes delicious, but the texture is too mushy. If anyone tries the spicy recipe above could you let us know how it was?
