Serves 6| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:

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.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
