6 cups honeydew or cantaloupe, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup canned peach or pear nectar (available in supermarkets)
1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon lime zest


Place the melon chunks in a plastic bag and put in the freezer overnight or at least a few hours before making the drinks. (The frozen melon will do the work of ice cubes and make the smoothies thick and frothy.) In two batches, puree all the ingredients in a blender. Serve.
