Meloney (Melon with Honey - A Healthy Drink)

Here is a good drink for summer evenings using Muskmelon.
The muskmelon or cantaloupe, is a perfect summer fruit. It's high water content can help take care of the fluid loss that our bodies go through due to perspiration in this season. It also helps to combat the heat in the body and thus, prevents heat-related disorders during summer.
If you are someone who is constantly counting calories then you should go the muskmelon way. This fruit is good for people who want to lose weight because it isn't high in calories or sugar, and can work as a great snack for those in-between-mealtimes when hunger pulls you towards unhealthy food items.
This drink, made from Muskmelon and Honey is as healthy as it can get. Honey we all know is very good for our health and a healthy replacement for sugar.
My daughter and I created this drink and its my daughter who combined the names "Melon" and "Honey" and called it "Meloney".
