  • Half of a refrigerated cantaloupe (or honeydew melon)
  • ¼ cup firm whole fat plain yogurt (or Greek yogurt)
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • ½ cup ice cold water

  3. Add the cantaloupe, yogurt, honey, rosewater and water to the chamber of your blender. Process until very smooth.
  4. Pour into glasses and sprinkle the top with ground cardamom.
Rosewater may be purchased at Persian/Middle Eastern/Indian markets.
