Monday Melon Smoothie Fix
January 25, 2016 by Tina Tovmasian
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!
