What's your Take?

This frothy summer beverage (center) gets its refreshingly mellow flavor from chunks of super-ripe cantaloupe. For a tropical twist, try substituting 1 cup of mango chunks for half of the melon.

What you'll need

  • 2 cups diced very ripe cantaloupe
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt

How to make it

  1. Place the melon chunks on a plate and place it in the freezer until the fruit is quite firm but not frozen solid, about 20 to 30 minutes.

  2. In a blender, puree the melon chunks with the orange juice and sugar until the mixture is smooth. Add 4 or 5 big scoops of ice cream or frozen yogurt and blend the mixture for another minute or so.

  3. Divide the cooler among four chilled glasses and serve. Makes four 8-ounce servings.
