Honeydew

Honeydew contains potassium, which helps to lower blood pressure, as well as antioxidant-dispensing vitamin C. Use your melon and pick up this sweet, juicy fruit! To prepare for extraction, cut the melon into quarters, cut the flesh from the rind, and remove any seeds. Cube the melon into 1-2" cubes, then add to your tall cup.

Selection Process

Look for creamy yellow skin with a slightly waxy feel. They should be firm, but not hard, giving just slightly to pressure. Avoid any melons with blemishes or green skin. They should be fairly large with some slight softness at the stem.
