Strawberry Lemondrop Melon Smoothie

Since I've been eating healthier, I've been more open to trying new foods.  So, the other day when we spotted a Lemon Drop Melon in the produce section of the supermarket, I decided to give it a try.

It tasted a lot like Honey Dew Melon to me and was fabulous in the fruit salad I made for dessert that night.  I've been drinking a lot of smoothies for breakfasts and/or lunches, so naturally, I wanted to try this new (to me) melon in smoothie form.

Sorry, no photo this time around!

Strawberry Lemon Drop Melon Smoothie 

  • 1/2 cup plain, fat-free Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup non-fat milk 
  • 3 splenda packets (optional) 
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 1 cup spinach, frozen 
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries, frozen
  • 1/2 cup lemondrop melon, frozen 
  • 10 ice cubes (optional) 
  • Add all ingredients, except for the ice, into the blender pitcher.  I added them in the order listed above.  Blend. 
  • Add ice, and blend until smooth and creamy.  
  • This makes a big smoothie!  Easily, this could be two servings.  One for breakfast, one for lunch.  Or one for you, one for a friend.  Or, if you're a piggy like me, drink it all at once!  
  • Can't find lemondrop melons as your grocer?  Use honeydew instead!
