A nice fruity drink served over ice for a delicious cool-down on a nice day. You can use any fruit, but melons are the best.

I cut the sugar in half and still thought it was too sweet. Also I just don't think I like cantaloupe blended like that. I think it would be better mixed with some other kind of fruit or flavor in with it. Thanks anyway. Read More

Mistakenly added the ice cubes to the blender so I guess I ended up with a cantaloupe smoothie but the flavor should be the same as just pouring the blended cantaloupe mixture over ice cubes. I don t like things too sweet so I did cut the sugar in half which worked fine for us (keep in mind you always can add more if needed). Melons flavor and sweetness vary greatly throughout the year and I think the success of this drink is dependent upon the melon itself. Most likely will be best when cantaloupes are in season. My husband wasn't crazy about this but I thought it tasted pretty darn good particularly considering it's February. Read More

Refreshing! Make that water COLD and it's delish. Cut the sugar BIG time (who needs 6 tbps of sugar in less than 2 cups of water anyways?!)to probably closer to 2 tbsp and threw in some Chia seeds cause I needed to finish off the bag. I'm 7 months pregnant and this was as close to a daiquiri I can get:) Read More

Original recipe is fine but something is missing. I put it all back into the blender and added a sprig of mint. Better. Add two ounces of vodka per glass and more ice NOW we are talking! I will try the vanilla addition next time too. Read More

We added the ice to the blender too and a splash of white rum... Everyone loved it at our Memorial Day cookout. I ran out of cantaloupes. I will be making this often. Delish! Read More
