That looks delicious! Perfect for a summer day, though I'm the only one in my family who likes cantaloupe :(. I don't think I can eat all of that by myself.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Being on a diet, I am avoiding ready made juices because of the sugar issue. If I made this with fresh squeezed juice it would work, right? Sounds amazing. Rosemary
