Summertime Cantaloupe-Peach Soup

I really enjoy making this soup in the summer when cantaloupes are in season. It's a nice change from eating cantaloupe in chunks or wedges, and the combination of ingredients is so yummy! I usually have it for breakfast, but, when there's a batch of it in the fridge, I can't leave it alone, and I'll eat it for lunch and snacks, too, until it's gone! Cool and refreshing, with a hint of ginger, it's just the thing for a summer day.

Directions:
- Puree all the ingredients in a blender.

Before serving, you may add any of the following:
Cantaloupe balls
Blueberries
Raspberries
Sliced seedless grapes
Chopped mint

Recipe Notes:
- A large cantaloupe usually makes about a recipe and a half.
- Plain yogurt may be substituted for the half of the buttermilk.
