SRC: Strawberry Melon Smoothie

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.
Serve immediately.


  1. Oh, the combination of strawberries and honeydew sounds amazing! Super refreshing on these hot days! I need to pick me up a honeydew!

  2. This sounds like a refreshing breakfast. I know that it would be well received by all. Great SRC selection.

  3. Thanks for cooking from, glad you enjoyed the smoothie.

  4. I'm always looking for new smoothie recipes and have never thought of using honeydew. How lovely!

  5. I adore summer fruit drinks and this one not only sounds but looks wonderful.
