- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Pour into tall glasses & enjoy!
This is such a refreshing drink on a warm (albeit unusual) November day. I had froze some cantaloupe this summer to keep on hand for smoothies as I love em. I cut the recipe down a touch as I was just serving myself. I used plain yogurt and then added one packet of splenda for sweetness. Of course I still kept with the addition of honey. :-) Made for Sweet Traditions Tag.
I love melon and oranges, but had never had them together, so wasn't sure what to expect or if I would like it. I sure did!!! I made it for 1/2 of the recipe for one and left out the honey, as my melon was super sweet, plus I find the honey doesn't mix in well with cold liquids. After tasting the smoothie I added several ice cubes and then stirred it around. Despite using cold melon, yogurt and OJ, it wasn't chilled enough for me after blending, but that was a perfect fix.
