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!

WOW!!! 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.
