I have slowly converted my kid to enjoy smoothie. The trick, I think, was to make him get involved. I make Avyan chop and let him add everything to the blender. He takes complete control and at the end, it gives a proud moment of achievement. Avyan loves any variety of melon and enjoys scooping it out with a tiny scooper. So, this smoothie was something that he gulped down with a smile.

With the days getting warmer, it’s important to keep options to stay hydrated. I often go for fruits and melon is always on the top of my fruit list.

Super hydrating and fiber filled Honey Dew Melon:

  • Contains a wide variety of nutrients
  • Reduces blood sugar
  • It’s 90% water and contains electrolyte, potassium, magnesium and calcium
  • High Vitamin C content makes it great for you skin
  • Boosts immune system
  • Contains fiber and thereby making it perfect for proper digestion

What goes in the 6 INGREDIENTS Melon Spinach Smoothie?

Honeydew Melon: Honeydew Melon is creamy and naturally sweet. You can use muskmelon or any other variety of melon. However, the color will change according to the melon you pick.

Spinach: You can switch spinach to any other greens that you like. I stick to baby spinach only because it’s blends easily.

Orange: It adds a refreshing taste to the smoothie and helps in keeping the color vibrant green. The smoothie stayed green even the next day.

Chia Seeds: This super food goes in almost all the smoothies that I make. You can avoid it if you don’t have it handy.

Honey: I added just a little bit for extra sweetness, which made it kid friendly too.

Yogurt: It’s the yogurt that makes the smoothie so creamy. You can also substitute it with coconut milk.

This melon smoothie recipe is adaptable as per your taste buds:

  • Coconut milk instead of yogurt
  • Use your choice of greens instead of just spinach
  • Try frozen honey dew melon and thick yogurt for a much thicker consistency
  • Make it into a melon smoothie bowl with your choice of toppings
  • Don’t like honeydew melon? Just use any other variety of melon that you like

What I love the most about this Melon Spinach Smoothie is how vibrant green it turned out. We always eat with our eyes first! The smoothie stayed green for a long time. I even had a left-over glass in the fridge and the color didn’t change.

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe, Kankana! And your photos are so beautiful!

    I and all my family love all types of green smoothies, but we haven’t tried a smoothie with melon yet. Hope, I’ll make this nearest time!
