Ingredients
Honeydew Cucumber Smoothie

2-4 cups Honeydew - seeded, rind discarded, chopped, frozen
1 cucumber Cucumber - peeled, chopped
1 cup lemon yogurt
2 tbsps Mint - chopped
1-2 tsps White Sugar

Directions

  1. Honeydew should be seeded, rind discarded and chopped - also best frozen prior. Cucumber should be peeled and chopped. Mint should be chopped.
  2. Add liquids first into the blender - yogurt, then mint, sugar and cucumber and finally the frozen honeydew last.
  3. Start your blender a low setting and work up to a higher one, process until smooth.

Smoothie Tips

  • Thinner Smoothie: For a thinner smoothie, add a little water - tablespoons at a time after blending everything else.
  • Smoothie Sweetness: Adjust the amount of sugar to make your smoothie sweeter.
  • Frozen Fruit: Using frozen fruit instead of fresh imparts a creamier texture to smoothies. This is particularly true for ripe honeydews. It's easier to pre-prep the fruits (clean, peel, chop) into smaller pieces prior to freezing and is also easier on your blender.
  • Blender Manuvers: Some blenders can struggle with blending large fiberous chunks or loads of frozen fruit. One tip is to begin on a lower speed and gradually increase into higher ones. Another tip is to try pulse, let the solids settle for a second or two, and pulse a few more times to break down large chunks.
