Day 195 - Summer Smoothie.
Hey guys! After yesterdays FREE Slurpee post, let's keep the beverage train moving and create a sweet, summer smoothie that will satisfy any sweet tooth. Hey, this recipe might even be a little more healthy than the Slurpee! I love smoothies. How about you? They are sweet, cool and usually the healthy sister to any slushie type beverage. Nothing says summertime breakfast more than a smoothie. This one has been made especially for celebrating the melon of summer, honeydew. Enjoy it on a hot and humid day and feel the summertime heat melt away.
Makes approximately 2-8oz smoothies

Step 1: Wash the outside of the honeydew mellon throughly with soap and water. Cut the flesh of the honeydew melon into 2 inch cubes.
Step 2: Add 1 cup pineapple, the coconut milk and fresh mint leaves to the blender and blend till smooth. Pour the liquid into 2 glasses.
Step 3: Add the honeydew mellon and 1 cup pineapple to the blender and blend till smooth. Pour the liquid into the 2 glasses over the top to the coconut milk, pineapple and mint leaves mixture. Add a straw and enjoy!
