Ingredients

6
cups
honeydew or cantaloupe, cut into 1-inch chunks
1
cup
orange juice
1/2
cup
canned peach or pear nectar (available in supermarkets)
1/2
cup
vanilla ice cream
1/2
cup
vanilla yogurt
1
teaspoon
lime juice
1/2
teaspoon
lime zest

Directions

  1. Place the melon chunks in a plastic bag and put in the freezer overnight or at least a few hours before making the drinks. (The frozen melon will do the work of ice cubes and make the smoothies thick and frothy.) In two batches, puree all the ingredients in a blender. Serve.
