Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cup ice
  • ½ cup diced honeydew melon
  • 2 oz. honey
  • 2 ounces coconut cream (Coco Lopez)
  • 2 ½ ounces brewed and chilled green tea
  • 10-15 fresh mint leaves

First, add the ice into a blender, followed by the rest of the ingredients. Blend until smooth or preferred texture desired. Pour into glasses (maybe cut some orange wedges for garnish), find a porch swing and enjoy! Recipe makes two drinks.
