Water-packed frozen cantaloupe acts like ice cubes in your blender; the smaller the dice, the easier it will be on the blades. Make this a traditional, pourable smoothie by adding a touch more carrot juice or water before whizzing everything together.

Ingredients

4 cups frozen cubed cantaloupe (1/2-inch pieces)
¾ cup carrot juice
Pinch of salt
Melon balls, berries, nuts and/or fresh basil for garnish

Directions

Combine cantaloupe, juice and salt in a food processor or high-speed blender. Alternate between pulsing and blending, stopping to stir and scrape down the sides as needed, until thick and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve the smoothie topped with more melon, berries, nuts and/or basil, if desired.
