Honeydew and mint cooler

Inspired by a drink concocted by Bob Blumer in his Surreal Gourmet show, Speedy substituted lemon for lime as lime is not always easy to find in supermarkets (our lime tree is fruitless these days).

This drink is definitely low-fat and low-sugar since no milk nor cream is used and the only sugar you get is the natural sugar of the honeydew. Despite the minimal ingredients and the simplicity of the recipe, the honeydew and mint cooler is delicious as the lemon juice spikes the blandness of the honeydew and the mint gives off a cooling sensation in the mouth.

Since no ice is added to make this drink, it is best to chill the honeydew before cutting and putting in the blender.
