Fresh mint – Adds a pleasantly refreshing flavor to the sweet and fragrant cantaloupe drink. 

Agave – This ripe cantaloupe juice is already naturally sweet, but you can always adjust its sweetness with agave.

Tips For Making Homemade Cantaloupe Juice

Blend with Ice

You can also blend the cantaloupe chunks with ice cubes for an extra refreshing cantaloupe juice. Just blend until the ice cubes are crushed.

Experiment with Flavors

While fresh cantaloupe juice is already delicious as is, feel free to make it with fresh ginger or add lemon juice to give it that extra oomph. You can also blend cantaloupe with coconut milk for a richer cantaloupe drink.

Leave the Pulp For Texture

Strain the fresh cantaloupe juice if you prefer a smooth drink. Otherwise, leaving the pulp will add texture and fiber to the drink.
