Ingredients

  • 1 ripe cantaloupe
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries, plus 4 raspberries for garnish
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • Juice of ½ a lime
  • 4 fresh mint leaves

Directions

  • Cut the cantaloupe in half, clean out the seeds, peel the halves, and cut the flesh into 1" pieces. Put the cantaloupe in a blender to create a smooth purée. Pour into a large bowl. Blend the raspberries into a smooth purée. Pour this into a strainer and push the juice and pulp through the strainer into a small bowl in order to remove the seeds. This should yield about ½ cup.
  • Stir the purées together, then add the juices and stir to blend. Chill 1 hour, then serve in small glasses or bowls, garnished with raspberries and mint.
