Smoothie Sunday: Blueberry Melon Smoothie
I like trying to use melons in smoothies because they’re so refreshing. They’re also a quintessential summer food. As I discovered last year, watermelon can be tricky because it’s just so, well, watery. I’d wanted to try a smoothie using honeydew melon last year, but the melon kept getting eaten before I had a chance to use it in a smoothie. So this year I made sure to grab some before it was all gone. I decided to mix it with blueberries because I like blueberries. As a bonus blueberries are really good for you.
Blueberry Melon Smoothie:
- 1 cup diced honeydew melon
- ½ cup blueberries
- 5-6 ice cubes
- 1 5.3 oz container vanilla or blueberry yogurt
- Pinch of salt
- Sugar to taste
In a blender combine the melon, blueberries and ice cubes until mostly broken down. Add the yogurt, salt and sugar and blend until smooth. Pour into a nice tall glass and enjoy!
