It has been near impossible to do anything this week. Its been an average of about 100 degrees every day. Worst of all, my pool is overgrown with algae so I have to wait a few days before I can swim. I think I have had all I can take. I am buying a portable air conditioner right....now. It's also hard for me to want to eat anything but salads and fruit in this weather. So last night I had the idea to freeze some melon and blend it up today. The colors are so beautiful it reminds me of the rainbow sherbet ice cream I would love as a kid. Its so easy and all you need is a food processor or even better a vita mix blender.
2 c cantaloupe sliced small
2 c honeydew sliced small
agave nectar (optional)
Simply place one kind of melon at a time in your food processor. It takes a bit of effort and finger crossing with a processor but it works well once it breaks up into smaller pieces. This is definitely more of a job for a vita mix but I dont have one...yet. You can add a little agave at this point, since the melon is a bit more bland frozen than when fresh.
Place the now frosty delicious melon mixture into a glass jar or bowl, and repeat with the second melon. Layer the melon on top for a pretty effect or just put it side by side in a bowl. Either way it tastes amazing!
