It's Secret Recipe Club time! This month I was assigned Simply Food. Nayna's blog has so many delicious recipe's to choose from. Her pictures are mouthwatering, and I love that her recipes are made with real food. Her blog is all things vegetarian which was so timely for me as my hubby has recently taken on a vegan lifestyle. She also has tons of authentic international food, another thing I love to learn about. Nayna describes herself as a home-cook without culinary school training striving to make her dishes feel complete without being complicated. Her blog accomplishes that. If she hadn't said so, I would not know that she hasn't had any formal training.
So after browsing through her yummy dishes I landed on the Strawberry and Melon Smoothie. It was a warm Sunday afternoon, we had recently returned from vacation and I was trying to get back into the routine of life but felt a little draggy. This smoothie caught my eye and was the perfect refreshing pick-me-up!
2 cups strawberries, washed and hulled
2 cups sweet honey dew melon, peeled and chopped into large chunks
2 mint leaves. torn
6 ice cubes
Add all ingredients to the blender and blend throughly.
Pour into tall pre chilled glasses and garnish if you wish with mint, melon balls, and/or strawberry.
