Melon Smoothies

Hi Friends,

I am incorporating more melon into my diet this week and hopefully so are all of you.

While looking through my cookbooks searching for some creative ways to incorporate melon into basic recipes it dawned on me, I've never had a melon smoothie, I've never made a melon smoothie. It seems like melons would be a wonderful smoothie base, they are juice, flavorful, sweet, and cheap, plus they are in season. 

I put my cookbook down right then and spent the next few hours coming up with some melon smoothies to share with all of you. 

I hope you enjoy them and decided to try a few yourself. 

Let's Educate ourselves on the benefits of eating melon

Here Come the Recipes:

None of these smoothies needed any liquid added, no almond milk or coconut water, the melon provides enough juiciness 

I used fresh ingredients for all of my smoothies, you can use frozen fruit if fresh fruit isn't available

All smoothies are vegan, grain-free, nut free, dairy free, 
gluten free

Watermelon Smoothie

2 cups cubed watermelon
5 frozen strawberries
add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth

Watermelon Apple Smoothie

2 cups seedless watermelon
1 apple
1 pear
add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth

Cantaloupe Berry Smoothie

2 cups cantaloup, peeled, seeded, cubed
1/2 cups greek yogurt
1 cup raspberries
2 tbs maple syrup
add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth

Cantaloupe Grape Smoothie


2 cups cantaloup, peeled, seeded, cubed
1 cup red seedless grapes
2 cups kale
1/4 cup coconut water
add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth

Honeydew Kiwi Smoothie

2 cups cubed honeydew
1 small apple, peeled, cored and cut up
1 kiwi peeled and cut up
2 tbs agave nectar
1 tbs lemon juice
add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth

Honeydew Mint Smoothie
2 cups honeydew cubed
2-3 fresh mint leaves
1 banana
1 tsp lime juice
1 tbsp honey
add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth
 
All of these smoothies are delectable it was hard to pick my favorite one. Maybe the Cantaloupe + Berry Smoothie or the Honeydew + Mint Smoothie, it's hard to make up my mind.

Which ever smoothie you choose all of them are natural energy boosters, who doesn't need an extra kick!

That's all today friends
Blessings,
