Dietitian’s tip:

You may assemble this ahead of time to have ready for after a hot afternoon in the garden or an after-workout refresher.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup fresh pineapple
  2. 1/2 cup cantaloupe or other melon
  3. 1 cup fresh strawberries
  4. Juice of 2 oranges
  5. 1 cup water
  6. 1 tablespoon honey

Directions

Remove rind from pineapple and melon. Cut into chunks. Remove stems from strawberries. You may want to refrigerate ingredients now to save until later.

When you’re ready to serve, place all ingredients in blender and puree until smooth. Serve cold.
