Sweet, juicy, Athena cantaloupes are being harvested now at Delvin Farms and are perfect for a summertime mint, lime and cantaloupe chiller. Grown organically and enjoyable anytime of the day in summer, I wanted to try a different way to consume this delicious melon. Despite not having a great blender, I’ve been determined to make a fun chiller this summer. This was so quick to make and made a Saturday afternoon a lot more fun & refreshing. In the dog days of summer, this chiller is a treat!
Cantaloupe is naturally hydrating and helps with inflammation and digestion. Don’t you love knowing the benefits to simple fruits & vegetables?

Dice cantaloupe and blend with lime juice and honey. Add in mint leaves at the end and pulse quickly. Pour mixture over ice, about 2/3 full in your glass. Top with sparkling mineral water and garnish with more mint, to your liking.
