Greens, melons and berries all mixed together in a spinach melon smoothie are wonderful healthy and completely satisfying. This smoothie is really good in the warmer month when you are looking for something refreshing and filling too.
Its also easy to turn this delicious smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite blender mix:
– 2 cups of melon chunks (cantaloupe, honeydew can be mixed together)
– 1 cup of frozen or fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries or blackberries, can be used individually or mixed together)
– 2 cups spinach
– 1/4 cup juice (your favorite-orange, cranberry, mango)
– 1 tbsp. Chia seed
