Delicious! I did eyeball the honeydew (used a whole honeydew, instead of measuring, but it was close) and used plain yogurt instead of vanilla, but otherwise kept it exact. It was AMAZING! I would never have believed that things I eat all the time taste SO SO SO good combined. This will now be a regular summer family recipe. Thanks!

This is quite healthy & tasty and very refreshing. I used honeydew with watermelon balls on top, freshly squeezed lime juice, I left the honey out as it was sweet enough and I didn't have any raw local honey (after finding out what is in the other stuff and how they cook it I no longer use pasteurised honey), and plain organic yogurt (forgot it said vanilla). Made for RECIPE SWAP #64 - May 2012.

Light, refreshing, healthy and delicious! I chose to garnish with cantaloupe balls for contrast, the two flavors complement each other. Thank you for sharing this recipe, morgainegeiser. Made as "Slice of Lime Babe" of the Brickhouse Bodacious Babes for ZWT5 Caribbean region.
