This is a very refreshing drink my mother made for me a lot when I was a child. It may seem a little strange, but if you like cantaloupe, try it! Great on a hot summer day!

Cook's Note

This drink is best served ice cold. Serve in a tall glass with a spoon so you can eat the little chunks of melon as you drink the liquid. You could skip the step of shredding the fruit with the fork and just throw it all in the blender, but you wouldn't get the yummy chunks (which to me is the best part!) The amount of sugar listed is a guideline. Adjust to how sweet your melon is/your personal taste. I hope you enjoy this delicious drink!

I wanted to wait until a really hot day to make this. It was so refreshing and the taste was amazing. I didn't like the chunks of cantaloupe in the drink so I might strain the drink next time and drink just the juice. Read More

It was GREAT.......... It mostly depends on the kind of cantaloupe you have... Sweet or ripe I tried 1 cup of water and 1 cup of ice....... But the ice did not really crush! But it was great!:) Read More
