Honeydew Cooler

Inspiration for this delicious summertime drink came from a summer vacation in Florida where the only way to cool yourself was through hydration.  This summertime favorite is naturally sweet and a healthy alternative to sugary beverages. Add a splash of gin or rum and you have an adult version in a matter of seconds!

Yield: 6 cups

Oven: N/A

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: N/A

Add To Cart

1 honeydew melon (approximately 4 pounds), peeled, seeds removed, cut into 2-inch chunks

1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Method:

1.   In a blender, like Vitamix, add honeydew and mint. Blend on low until incorporated then high until smooth.

2.   Using a fine mesh strainer, strain the mixture discarding any remaining pith.

3.   Add fresh lime juice, stir to combine and serve over ice.

4.   For an adult version, add a splash of gin right before serving.

 

Kitchen Note:  Consider garnishing with freshly cut lime or cucumber and a “fancy” or tropical straw for festive sipping.
