honeydew melon - peeled, seeded and cubed
cucumber, peeled and chopped
Kids love it! Healthy drink!
Not my cup of tea, but interesting. I felt like I wasted a good honeydew. I will try different ratios of melon to cucumber and see if that helps.
Awesome kickstart to the day!
This was much different than the usual fruit-sweet and hearty green drinks.
It had a more delicate, bizarre touch to the flavors that I REALLY LIKED.
Super healthy too, so definitely not a waste of time/ingredients.
Great job Heidi!!!
I changed it up a bit:
Only 1/8 cup of Broccoli
No Mint (didn't have any)
Added a handful of baby spinach
Next time I would only use 1/2 a cucumber, cause that's all I could taste.
The flavor was really refreshing on a hot summer day! I substituted half of the ice cubes with almond milk I did add the broccoli and added extra grapes. Defiantly going to make this one again!
Actually I didn't have any honedew melon, so I made this with kiwi fruit. I doubled the broccoli and still couldn't taste it, BTW I used frozen cut broccoli - partially defrosted. Also, I had to add 1/2 C of water. Blenders need some liquid to get the process started. It was good
This is a very interesting idea! I didn't particularly care for it, but it was not repulsive by any means. I left out the broccoli, but otherwise followed the recipe. It's certainly refreshing; the mint helps with that as well. Not sure I should have had it for breakfast - maybe more of an afternoon snack.
