Melon, Mango, and Mint Smoothie

Summer means cold watermelon slices in Texas – just one of the ways we try to beat the heat. Holiday get- togethers ,family gatherings, or simple suppers often include cantaloupe or watermelon as a side.  Cool, sweet, and juicy, there is no better way to eat melons than sliced and eaten fresh.  Some like to add a dash of salt.  We love a squeeze of lime juice.

Often, there are a few slices of melon leftover which are fine stored in the refrigerator for a quick, cool snack.  We also like to use melon in smoothies, so I thought I would post a simple recipe for a wonderful summertime breakfast smoothie.
