Now this is a great, refreshing dinner for when you want something light. It also makes a wonderful breakfast. I saw this in the new July/August Everyday Food and couldn’t wait to try it. Half a cantaloupe will give you two good-sized smoothies. Eat the other half of the cantaloupe the next day or hell, make two more smoothies! I added a little milk to this, as the cantaloupe needed a little help getting going in the beginning. Also, I recommend buying a whole cantaloupe for this — pre-cut chunks tend to have less flavor and you really want the cantaloupe to have as much flavor as possible.
I imagine this would also work very well with melon.
3 cups cantaloupe (1/2 a cantaloupe)
1/4 cup fat-free milk
2 Cups low-fat or fate free, plain yogurt (or, I bet vanilla yogurt would be great in this too)
2-3 tbsp honey
Add the milk and half the cantaloupe to the blender. Pulse until it is broken down. Then add the rest of the cantaloupe, yogurt, honey and ice.
Garnish with fresh mint to be fancy.
