Minted Strawberry Cantaloupe Punch
|Fresh mint leaves/2 tablespoons dried peppermint tea||16|
|Water||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Pineapple juice||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Sliced fresh strawberries/1/3 package frozen unsweetened strawberries||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Cantaloupe/1/2 package frozen unsweetened cantaloupe balls||1⁄2 , peeled and cut into chunks|
If fresh mint leaves are not available, make an infusion by pouring 1 cup boiling water over peppermint tea and allowing to steep 5 minutes.
Strain and use instead of water.
Combine pineapple juice, mint infusion or water and strawberries in electric blender and process until pureed.
Add cantaloupe, honey and fresh mint, if using it, and process until smooth.
If you want to serve in a punch bowl, freeze some of the punch in a small container which will fit into the punch bowl.
Use this instead of ice when serving to avoid diluting punch.
