Melon milk

Melon adds summer sweetness to this simple, refreshing beverage. Consider other fruits, too. Blend with ice to make it a slushy consistency.

Print Recipe

To print this recipe, choose a print size:



2 cups chopped honeydew, chilled
2 cups unsweetened almond milk, chilled
1/8 tsp. salt
Optional: 2 pinches ground cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and/or 1/4 tsp. vanilla



Blend all ingredients well on high speed in a blender. Strain to remove melon fiber for a silkier texture. If mixture is too thick, add water or more almond milk. If too thin, add more melon.


  • Instead of almond milk, use 2 cups unsweetened coconut milk, or 1 cup coconut milk and 1 cup water.
  • Instead of honeydew, use fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, peaches, pears or other types of melons.
