Last week, I ran across a recipe that juiced cantaloupe. I love it when someone comes up with an idea that never occurred to me! 🙂
The original recipe was posted in a Friday Foodie blog post on Brown Paper Tickets back in July. But I had cantaloupe now, and since it is still frequently quite warm here in Eastern Washington, a cool fruity beverage sounded lovely.
I “consolidated” a few steps in the original recipe (or, as my family would tell the story, I failed to read the instructions and poured everything into the blender all at once). However you choose to spin THAT story, here is what I did:
- 1/2 ripe cantaloupe, peeled and cubed
- 1 quart cold water
- 1/3 c. raw sugar
Add everything to blender and puree until smooth. Serve over ice (with or without your alcoholic add in of choice) and enjoy.
