Melon sundae

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooling time: 10 minutes

2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons unsweetened orange juice
1 package (10 ounces) unsweetened frozen blueberries, thawed (approximately 2 cups)
2 2/3 cups low-fat, no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream
1 honeydew melon (approximately 6 pounds), peeled and cut into 8 slices
Fresh blueberries (optional)

In a saucepan, whisk together cornstarch and orange juice. Add thawed blueberries. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook 1 minute (or until sauce thickens), gently stirring constantly. Set aside to cool slightly, approximately 10 minutes.

To serve, place a 1/3-cup scoop of ice cream on each honeydew slice. Drizzle with 2 1/2 tablespoons blueberry sauce. Garnish with fresh blueberries if desired.

Blueberry sauce may be prepared ahead and thinned with unsweetened orange juice, if desired, when reheating.
