Honeydew Smoothie

Drink Up!

Summer is here in spades and it’s a perfect time to add a cool and refreshing smoothie to the mix. 

Given that we tend to sweat more when it’s hot, its recommended that we start hydrating about double the amount we normally would.  That’s a LOT of liquid – best bet is water.  Doctor it up by adding lemon, sliced cucumbers, or mint. But even I have a limit to spruced up water, so this extra hydrating smoothie is a great alternative. 

For both the honeydew and cucumber in this recipe, make an extra effort to buy organic.  They are both in season, so there is a nice bumper crop AND they have so much more flavor!  This is great for a mid-day pick-me-up, a starter course for a summer dinner or simply a liquid lunch.

Honeydew Cucumber Smoothie with a Kiss of Lime

insidewink’s Reliable Recipes/ insidewink.com



Organic Honeydew Melon 2 Cups (cut up)

Organic English Cucumber 1 ½ Cups (cut up)

Sheep’s or Goat Yogurt ~ 3 oz.

Limes 1 oz. plus 1 T (juiced)

Fresh Mint 2 Ts (torn up)

6-7 Ice Cubes


Combine all ingredients in a blender, blend, pour, ENJOY!!  

** Note :  Choose a smaller, fully ripe organic Honeydew if possible.  You will hit optimum Honeydew flavor and sweetness this way.  If this is not possible and you find the Honeydew waning, add a few drops of agave syrup to the smoothie to round out the flavors.  

Yield : Approx. 14 -16 oz.
