Three Melon Smoothie

When it’s 80 degrees at 8 a.m., I need something cool and refreshing for breakfast. One of my favorite morning drinks is this frothy melon smoothie. It’s terrific after an early morning run, like the one I just went on. It’s one of the few, if only, smoothie recipes you’ll see on this site. Normally I throw whatever fresh or frozen fruit we have on hand into a blender, with yogurt or milk, some juice and puree.

But a few years ago my mom sent me the food section  from my hometown newspaper. It featured smoothies. This recipe has become one of my summertime favorites. It’s delicious and packs a nutritional whallop.

Melons are commanding entire tables at the farmers market right now. Feel free to be adventurous and try different types of melons here. You can’t go wrong.

Just chop up them up and store them in containers. For breakfast, scoop out the chopped melon with a measuring cup and blend with yogurt and orange juice.
