Mint Honeydew Smoothie

Active Time: 10 minutes

Makes 2 servings

Nutrition Corner/Chef’s Tip: Melons are high in vitamins C and A, potassium, and if it is a red one, lycopene. They help promote growth and maintenance of body tissues, healthy teeth, skin, and bones, and a healthy blood pressure. When choosing a melon (not watermelon) give a sniff at the ends; if it is ripe, it will give off a floral, sweet scent. For watermelon, give it a thump with your forefinger; it should give a bass-note, hollow sound rather than a “ping,” and the spot that sat on the ground should be yellowish, not white. All melons should feel heavy in your hands, and there should be no deep nicks or bruises; some surface scarring is fine. Store uncut melon on the counter for up to three days; any longer than that and the refrigerator is best. Cut melon should be stored, tightly wrapped, in the refrigerator.
