If you follow me on instagram, you are likely aware already of my smoothie obsession. When warm weather comes, I blend up fruit and veg as often as twice a day. I shared my recipe for a strawberry rhubarb smoothie here, and today, I have another offbeat flavor combination to share with you . . . cucumber melon.
Now, if you're saying to yourself, isn't that a Bath and Bodyworks scent, well, yes it is. But that doesn't mean it's not also delicious in smoothie form.
I have a rule when it comes to flavor combinations. It's called The Rule of Green. The Rule of Green states that anything green will taste great when paired with something else that's also green, and it never fails.
Green tea and mint? Yum! Lime and basil? Absolutely! Avocado dill? Why the heck not?!
I'm not sure if The Rule of Green plays to our psychological ideas about food or if there's just a hint of "green flavor" that runs through everything green. All I know is that it works. And I'm here to spread the good word of green.
About 1/2 cup to 1 cup water
1/3 of a large cucumber, washed but not pealed
8 oz. honeydew melon, cubed and frozen (I like to buy it cut up in a plastic container, and I just pop the container in the freezer when I get it home.)
Step 01. Starting with just 1/2 cup of water, put all ingredients in a blender and blitz until smoothi.
Step 02. Add more water if needed or desired.
