Healthy Cantaloupe Basil Slushy

I love cantaloupe and every Summer we have cantaloupe till our little heart's content!  This recipe was new to me and was the first time I'd tried it.  I loved it, so its a keeper!
Not only does it taste delicious, it looks beautiful when its served up!  Of course, as you know, every drink is better with an umbrella straw! :)
I have fresh basil growing in the back yard, so I went out and picked a few leaves for the recipe and to garnish with. Gorgeous!  I joined an Instagram tour where we all shared yummy treats of the frozen variety, so for more delicious drinks and treats, go check that out HERE.
Cantaloupe Basil Slushy


2 cups cantaloupe cut into cubes and chilled
2 cups crushed ice
2 table spoons honey
1-2 fresh basil leaves (optional: 1 sprig to garnish with)


In a blender add the ice, cubed cantaloupe, honey and basil leaves.  Blend until smooth.  Serve in a chilled glass and garnish with basil and cantaloupe pieces.  Makes two small drinks.
Then, enjoy it by the pool!  Its the perfect refreshing Summer drink and its good for you too!  Click here for how we built our pool.
