Two of my most favorite summer foods are ice cream and cantaloupe which is why I absolutely LOVE, LOVE this week's drink...A Cantaloupe Cooler! I think it's more like a dessert than a drink...All I can say is YUM, YUM!
- 3/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Fat Free Half & Half
- 1/2 small (2 cups) cantaloupe, cut into 2-inch chunks
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 cups vanilla ice cream
- Mint sprigs, if desired
- Melon wedges, if desired
Combine fat free half & half, cantaloupe and vanilla in 5-cup blender container. Cover; blend at medium speed until well blended (30 seconds to 1 minute).
Scrape down sides of container; add ice cream. Cover; blend at medium speed until smooth (10 to 15 seconds).
Pour into individual glasses. Garnish with mint sprigs and melon wedges, if desired. Serve immediately.
TIP: This melon cooler can be eaten slightly frozen as a milk shake or thawed as an ice cream drink.
