  • 2 ripe cantaloupe melons
  • 8 cups water
  • 6 kiwis
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup add more if you prefer it sweeter


  • Half the melons to get 4 pieces. Set two halves aside.
  • Peel the kiwi fruit.
  • Extract the fruit from one of the melons (two halves) and add to a blender.
  • Add 4 cups of water and 3 of the kiwi fruit.
  • Blend on high for about 30-40 seconds or the melon has been liquified.
  • Place a sieve over the top of a pitcher and gradually pour the blended melon through the sieve, squeezing it through with the back of a wooden spoon or spatula.
  • Discard the remaining pulp left in the sieve and continue to strain the juice from the blender.
  • Repeat the process with the second melon.
  • Once both melons have been blended and strained into the pitcher, add the agave and stir with a whisk until the agave has dissolved.
  • Cover the pitcher with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for at least two hours or overnight.
  • Add some ice to the pitcher just before serving and pour into tall glasses.
  • Garnish with some extra slices of kiwi.


You may have to do half of a melon at a time if your blender is on the small side.
