So it's now breakfast on "H" day and I'm using HONEYDEW MELON
I made a Honeydew Melon Smoothie. This is a winner with all the fresh notes of this fruit and the hint of lime coming through. A definite summer drink! - Yummy!
1 ripe fresh Avocado
1 cup honeydew melon chunks
Juice from 1/2 lime (or more to taste)
1 cup milk
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup apple juice or white grape juice
1 Tbsp honey
1. Cut avocado in half, remove pit.
2. Scoop out flesh, place in blender.
3. Add remaining ingredients; blend well.
Serve cold. Will hold in refrigerator up to 24 hours.
** Large avocados recommended for this recipe.
