Honeydew Smoothies

Honeydew Smoothies

This morning for breakfast, I decided to make my wife and I some smoothies. And with a full honeydew melon on hand to utilize, I thought I’d try out a recipe I found on the Food Network website (with one small additional ingredient). I was admittedly nervous about the outcome, since honeydew is a pretty under-the-radar fruit, often just seen in fruit salads along with cantaloupe, strawberries, grapes, etc. It’s rarely the “featured” fruit in anything, so even finding a recipe (at all) that featured it was no easy task. Regardless, both of us were surprised by how delicious these smoothies ended up being, and will gladly make more of them in the future. If you’re in the mood for a smoothie and have a few cups of honeydew melon at your disposal, I’d highly recommend you try this recipe. You’ll be glad you did!

Ingredients

  • 2 c. honeydew melon, cubed
  • 1 c. low-fat, organic vanilla (or plain) yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. apple juice
  • 6-8 ice cubes
  • 2 tbsp. honey

Directions

  1. Place all items in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy.
  2. Pour into individual glasses. Garnish with melon slices, raspberries, strawberries, if desired.

Notes

This recipe, as it is, results in a relatively watery smoothie, not a frothy or semi-frozen smoothie like many recipes end up with. That said, you can always adjust the amount of melon, yogurt, juice, and/or ice you use to adjust the final product — it’s up to you and your preferences. Either way, the end result is nothing short of surprisingly delicious!

Bon Appétit!
