What can I do with Honey dews?

Husband wanted to support my clean diet...and ended up buying few fruit platters last weekend.

While I truly enjoyed eating already-cut fruits all week (I know I am lazy :-p lol), but I still have one huuuge unopened Del monte fresh honey dew platter.

I don't think I can finish it and will hate to waste it? Any ideas what I can do with it...other than eating it as raw fruit :)



  • Can I freeze it to make smoothie or something later?

    Call me ignorant...but I am not sure if honey dews will make a good smoothie. Hmm...I am looking online while typing this :)

    There are 'fruit soup' recipes online. Melons are popular. Those are summer soups though like gazpacho. But I eat frozen yogurt in winter I make myself.

    Yes, it will freeze for future smoothie use. You can use it as part of a fruit salad. Epicurious is free and has loads of great ideas such as this one for honedew with lime and coconut. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Honeydew-Melon-in-Coconut-Milk-106918

    You can definitely freeze it to make smoothies! I bought a big bag of frozen fruit from Costco to make smoothies with... it had pineapple, peaches, cantaloupe, grapes and honeydew in it, made some of the best smoothies :)

    Put it in a food processor, juice it, and then freeze in an ice cube tray. We do this with watermelon, too.

    Once frozen, you can add to water and drink.

    Or, you can then put the cubes in a blender (either let them thaw just a few minutes or add some fresh juice) and blend. Fresh fruit icee. OM NOM NOM

    If you're going to freeze it, it works best to freeze as chunks. From trial and error making baby food purees, I've found it is not one of the better freezing fruits in "liquid" state. When you want to use the frozen chunks later, just puree them straight from their frozen state for smoothies.

    I like to wrap it with prosciutto. It's sweet, salty and delicious!

    For some reason, I am not crazy about honeydew mixed with milks or other fruits in a smoothie. I like honeydew thrown in the blender with JUST ice and maybe a bit of water to get the right consistency (thin) and it's more like a honeydew "juice" even though it's icy. I actually LOVE this.

    We got a huge honeydew just this week and I chopped it all up and my husband and I have been enjoying a small bowl of the chunks each morning with our breakfast. I pair mine with coffee and an egg taco (small flour tortilla, fried egg, splash of chipotle dressing). SUPER good at around 220 cal for the entire breakfast.

    If you are trying to stay away from just eating the fruit or juicing it...google: savory honeydew recipes- they have an amazing grilled shrimp and honeydew gazpacho recipe!
