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.
Fun fact: many of the melons that we commonly call cantaloupes in America aren’t actually cantaloupes. They’re muskmelons. It’s one of those situations where all cantaloupes are muskmelons, but not all muskmelons are cantaloupes. It’s confusing. But whatever the case, the orange melon we eat in the summertime is yummy. So I decided to make a smoothie out of it.
