Melons freeze quite well. Simply remove the flesh from the rind, cut the melon into chunks and freeze them in a zip-top bag or other container. You can take them straight from the freezer to the blender for a quick smoothie.
Creamy melons, such as Crenshaws, make especially great drinks. This Melon Smoothie Recipe is so forgiving that you could omit almost any ingredient and still have a delicious, refreshing breakfast. Yield: 2 smoothies.
