Lime Ginger Honeydew

"A light refreshing mixture to serve for breakfast or as a summery dessert. I use Splenda as I cannot digest sugar, but you can use sugar in its place if you wish. I haven't used ginger powder in place of fresh ginger. If you do, let me know the results!"

    How many honeydew melons does it take to make 10 cups?

    Don't use Splenda, Nutrasweet, Sweetnlow or any other artificial sweetener, they are TOXIC to the human body! I used 3 tbsp of local honey (great if you get allergies in the spring and summer). Great breakfast recipe. Thanks for posting! Gave it 4 stars b/c of the sweetener mistake.

    This is a huge pot luck favorite of mine - especially in the summer. I usually bring several copies of the recipe to save me from having to do it later. Works great with honey too!

    This is good. DH ate the amount I made so I got a tiny taste but him eating it all says yummy! I used regular white sugar, freshly squeezed lime juice plus I also added some strawberries cut in half. I would make this again and would like to try it next time with honey to replace the sugar.

    I had a honeydew that wasn't quiet ripe enough to stand alone. This was a great way to give it some zing and sweetness without making it too sophisticated for my toddler's paletes. I used the ginger powder (shook some in, don't know how much) and it think it is perfect.
