Ginger Melon Chillers

Pst. I need to get this off my chest.

I…

don’t like cantaloupe. Or, as my grandma calls it, muskmelon.

With a name like muskmelon, it’s got to be, like, for old people?

I’m sorry Grandma, I’m sorry Grandpa, I’m sorry to anyone who loves this melon and has ever served it to me and I pretended to like it. But the secret is out. I’d just plain rather have a banana.

So why oh why oh why did I buy a jumbo muskmelon?

Ginger Melon Chiller in a glass with cantaloupe and a spoon.

The answer is because it was $1.99, and how can you expect me to pass up something that’s bigger than my head for just $1.99?

And the real answer is because I needed to fall in love with this ginger melon chiller and, yes, muskmelon.

Because now I like muskmelon. When it’s blended up with ginger, honey, and citrus… it’s a whole new fruit!

But I am going to stop calling it muskmelon now.

Here’s to cheap cantaloupes and fun summer drinks. Cheers!

Description

Ginger Melon Chillers are made with fresh ginger and cantaloupe, orange juice, honey, and lime. Super simple and refreshing.



  1. Blend cantaloupe with 6 oz. of the soda and the orange juice.
  2. Add honey, ginger, and lime and blend until very smooth.
  3. Add remaining soda, give it one last whir in the blender, and serve immediately.

Notes

Frozen cantaloupe makes for a much smoother drink. If you don’t use frozen cantaloupe, the drink might have some pulp from the melon. To get rid of the pulp, just strain the drink through a sieve. Also, you can substitute the soda and ginger for ginger ale.
