Cantaloupe Melonade

We’re in the thick of summer and I’m lazing on a Sunday afternoon. What better way to enjoy it than with a refreshing glass of ice-cold melonade! Cantaloupe style, that is! It’s just as comforting as lemonade but it’s not sour so it doesn’t require as much sugar. Especially, if your cantaloupe is sweet enough, to begin with.

I guess you could use honeydew melon, as well. Hmmm… remind me to try that next time.

Meanwhile, I’ll be chuggin’ this stuff for the next week or so.

Ingredients (16 Servings):
1 Cantaloupe, cubed
1 Cup Organic Raw Cane Sugar, maybe more
Ice Cold Water

Directions:
Using a blender, liquify cantaloupe cubes with a little water for about a minute. You may have to do this in 2 batches.

Transfer juice in a gallon-size pitcher. Fill with ice cold water until the all the liquid adds up to a gallon.

Add in 1 cup of sugar, to start. Stir and give it a taste. If needed, add more sugar to desired sweetness. Finally, stir constantly for a couple of minutes or until the granules are completely dissolved.

Skim the foam on top, if you wish. Pour in ice-filled glasses and serve. It will keep well in the fridge for up to 5 days.
