Green SlushFor an icy snack, whirl up this mix of fruits and white grape juice. Using the ripest fruit gives the sweetest flavor. For honeydew melon, this means taking the paler, juicier part near the center of the melon rather than the green flesh closer to the rind. The banana should be especially ripe.
2 c. cubed ripe honeydew melon, frozen
1 c. peeled and cubed kiwifruit, frozen
1 ripe small banana, pre-peeled and frozen
½ c. 100% white grape juice, chilled
Place the frozen melon and kiwi in a food processor. Slice the frozen banana and add it to the other fruit. Pour in the chilled juice. Whirl and pulse until the mixture is an icy slush. Immediately spoon the slush into plastic cups and serve. This can also be served in glass dessert dishes, for a more sophisticated presentation.
