Monday Melon Smoothie Fix

Melon Smoothie

Running around all day, cleaning, cooking, playing, nursing, bathing,…well you get the point. There is so much on your plate as a parent that often the last thing on your “To-Do List” is YOU. So hubby and I decided in order to take better care of ourselves we are going to have one smoothie a day. To keep it interesting, I wanted to come up with a different smoothie recipe for every day of the week (ok and I was also cheesy and decided to name the smoothies with the same letter as the day of the week so that I would remember which smoothie we are supposed to have that day). But cheesy or not, this is one way to ensure we get a variety of fruit, veggie, nut and dairy intake during the week and we don’t get bored of the same thing. So here is my first recipe – the Monday Melon Smoothie.

What You’ll Need to Make this Melon Smoothie:

  • 2 cups melon, chopped
  • 1/2 green pear, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice

Step 1 and Final Step:

  • Put all the above ingredients in a blender (I use the Nutribullet) and blend until smooth (make sure there are no chunky pieces in there) and enjoy!
