Get out the blender, cut up a honeydew melon, squeeze some lime juice, and you’re off. The recipe calls for English cucumber, and there’s no need to peel. Mint leaves get blended in too. The result: a smoothie of the palest green with a fresh scent and cooling yet invigorating taste.

2 cups chopped honeydew

1 cup chopped English cucumber

12 fresh mint leaves

2-4 tablespoons fresh lime juice, to taste
