Dewy and Cool Smoothie

Dewy and Cool Smoothie

Cool, completely refreshing, with delicate subtle flavors that make you want to pay attention, this healthful summer smoothie is an elegant treat for hot, humid days. I made this smoothie on a very hot and muggy day–as a special drink for my birthday, in fact–and it kept me cool for hours afterwards. It is also a drink that has a stature, making it a treat for celebrations.

If you have a ripe honeydew, the likelihood is that you will have everything else you need, and you can make this smoothie on the spot:

One half of a fresh, ripe honeydew melon

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

pinch of salt

1/3 cup lemon-lime soda or ginger ale

6 ice cubes

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until slightly frothy.

Makes 2 servings.

Don't know how I missed this when first posted in 2003, but it sounds like a bit of heaven for a hot summer day.
