Good stuff. I used bottled lime juice and frozen melon balls. As a result my smoothie was slushy and thick. Yum. Read More

This is more of a melon slurry than a smoothie....there's nothing smooth about it. I made this with honey instead of the sugar and slightly less as honey is sweeter. However it was still too sweet and the lime gave it a weird sour taste. I tried adding water which turned it into a cooler/agua fresca but it still had a strange puckery taste. I used the other half of my melons to make a "milky melon" smoothie by simply adding a cup of coconut milk and it tasted much better...creamy like a real smoothie! Read More

This was very good and refreshing. I only had cantaloupe so I omitted the honeydew and doubled the cantaloupe. I also used bottled lime juice (1/4 cup). I froze half of the cantaloupe and it was wonderful. Next time I will try adding the honeydew and using fresh lime juice but this way worked well too. Read More

Great Summer Snack. Approx 1 melon makes 1 large glass so you may want to keep that in mind if you are entertaining. I only used honeydew melon. I subbed out the sugar for organic honey. I also added fresh mint leaves. Next time I will freeze the melon cubes before blending to make it a bit more slushy. Excellent! Read More
