August is prohibited where we live. We might be wilting, though a heat-loving plants in a garden adore it! This Cucumber Melon Mint Smoothie is a ideal approach to use anniversary furnish while cooling down.
In-season furnish is so value it, both for a implausible season and price. If we don’t have a garden, find a internal farmer’s marketplace or furnish stand. (And start formulation a garden for subsequent year!)
Drink Your Produce
My go-to approach to eat veggies and fruits is customarily only in a hulk salad, though carrying another choice is nice. We flattering most have our favorite smoothie recipes down to a scholarship and they are a good approach to get additional nutrients into picky eaters or give kids “a treat” that is still good for them.
Smoothies can container utterly a sugarine strike (even if it is healthy sugar), so in a residence they aren’t an bland thing and we frequency offer them for breakfast. (Here’s what we do serve.)
This Cucumber Melon Mint Smoothie is some-more of a break or lovely splash than a meal, though for some blood-sugar balancing protein, try adding a dip of collagen powder to this (or any) smoothie. Unlike gelatin, collagen powder won’t clump in cold liquids.
How to Make a Cucumber Melon Mint Smoothie
The name of this smoothie flattering most gives a whole recipe away! Take melon, cucumbers, and uninformed packet and mix in your favorite blender with H2O (or coconut water) and a dip of collagen if desired.
Feel giveaway to surrogate your favorite form of melon, though we like watermelon and cantaloupe best in this recipe.
I leave a flay on a cucumber for additional nutrients (you might wish to flay if non-organic). It’s also a good thought to clout off an in. from both ends of a cucumber to mislay a sour freshness end.
If a cucumber is a bit disproportionate (it happens!), half a cucumber and scratch out a largest seeds before blending.
Tip: Give a kids some toothpicks and let them make imagination garnishes with a leftover cucumber and melon!
Cheers to summer!
