Honey Honeydew Smoothie

Enjoy this sweet cool smoothie in the extreme heat of the summer! To adjust it for 'adult consumption', add one shot of light rum per person. Chef's note: Like men, some honeydews are sweeter than others; be sure to adjust the amount of honey you're using, depending on the sweetness of your honeydew. If you've happened upon a very sweet and ripe one, cut down on honey (to 1/4 cup), if your honeydew is lacking flavor, add honey gradually, until you reach the sweetness you crave (serves 4):
4 heaping cups ripe honeydew chunks (~ 1.5 to 2 lbs, ~2 to 3 inches each) plus 4, 1/4 inch wedges for garnish
1 cup Granny Smith apple wedges-skin and core removed (approximately one small apple)
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup honey
2 t cinnamon
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth (depending on the size of your blender, you may need to work in two batches).
2. Refrigerate for ~30 minutes, garnish with honeydew wedges, and serve. Alternatively, add ice to the blender and blend until all ice is crushed; garnish with honeydew wedges and serve immediately.
