Melon Smoothies

Melon Smoothies, whether Honeydew or Watermelon, all have very subtle tastes. Melon is light and fresh and can be quite sweet.

These recipes have included both the melon varieties. Both the addition of Lime and Mint gives a punch to the whole recipe: another favorite summer smoothie.


Melon Smoothies and Health

There are many types of melons on the market but they tend to fall into two major categories: muskmelon and watermelon. Muskmelons fall into a further two categories: those with a netted skin such as cantaloupe and those with a smooth skin such as honeydew.

Melons generally (…whether they have a red, yellow or orange fleshy fruit!) are a good source of Vitamin A and antioxidants. Many are a good source of Vitamin C and contain phytochemicals such as carotenoids and bioflavonoids.

One tenth of a Honeydew melon has about 50 calories, no fat and is high in Potassium. Two cups of Watermelon have about 80 calories, no fat and no sodium…and again is high in Potassium.
