Melon-Ginger Smoothie

Spiked with ginger, this smoothie is guaranteed to perk you up after a long bike ride or make a nice starter to a summer meal on the deck. For a more aromatic variation, use a cantaloupe instead of a honeydew melon.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped honeydew melon
  • 1/3 cup chopped peeled kiwi, (1 large)
  • 1/2 ripe banana, sliced
  • 1/4 cup white grape juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger juice, (see Ingredient Note)
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1/3 cup lemon sorbet
  • 1/2 cup ice

Instructions

Step 1
Place ingredients in the order listed in a blender. Pulse three times to chop the fruit, then blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Tips

Ingredient Note: Bottled ginger juice is available in most health-food stores and gourmet markets—or make your own by squeezing chopped fresh ginger through a garlic press or piece of cheesecloth.
