Tasteful Tuesday: Honeydew Punch

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

Honeydew Melon

The honeydew melon is either a favorite or the thing everyone leaves behind in a fruit salad. We think this honeydew punch will unite both sides, so serve it up at your next summer party.

What You’ll Need:

  • 4 cups honeydew melon,
    seeded and cubed
  • 3 kiwi, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup lemonade
    (we recommend sugar-free)
  • 1 1/3 cups white grape juice
    (we recommend unsweetened)

Directions:

  1. Place the melon, kiwi and lemonade in a food processor fitted with the chopping blade, and process until smooth.*
  2. Pour through a strainer into a large pitcher to remove any pulp and solids.
  3. Add the white grape juice, stir well, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 3 days.
    Serve over ice.

*Note: A food processor works best in this step,
but you could use a blender if that’s what you have on hand.
