Honeydew Smoothie

 Ahhh......  It's nice to have something thirst-quenching, healthy, and cool on a hot day.  According to my smoothie cook book, this is extremely low in calories and fat.  I love the fact that you use fresh mint in this smoothie, it gives it a nice twist to the honeydew, and.......  Before you know it, you'll have sucked down the entire smoothie.

Cut a honey dew melon in half....

 Stick a spoon in it....

 and scoop out all the seeds.

 peel and dice the melon...

 and make sure you have at least 2 1/2 cups.

 Now, grab a couple of tablespoons fresh mint leaves,

 and chop them up.

 Now grab some ginger ale or sprite,

 measure 1/3 cup and pour it into a blender along with all the other ingredients:

Honey dew
1 tablespoon lime juice
Pinch of salt
2 cups of ice

Blend together well.

 Tada!  A refreshing, easy, low-calorie smoothie.
