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.
Melon, Mango, and Mint Smoothie
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 mango, seeded and scooped out
1 cup (or more) seeded watermelon pieces, or substitute any melon
1 sprig of mint, leaves stripped
1 Tablespoon honey
juice of 1/2 lime
Place all ingredients in blender jar and pulse until smooth. Pour into a pretty glass and garnish with a thin slice of melon.
