Smoothies are all the rage right now, but let’s face it – drinking that glass of green sludge stuff isn’t for everyone. Heck, drinking that green stuff isn’t for me. I have to admit, I’ve pretty much been ignoring this smoothie trend, as I wanted nothing to do with it. Until now.
Summer is the season of the most amazing fruit available. Berries are ripe, soft tree fruits are ripe, and melons are at their peak of sweetness. Oooh…melons…Don’t even get me started on my love of melon in the summer! Why not make a melon smoothie that has this delicious, fleeting summer fruit as the star of the show?
Even better, this healthy smoothie has no added sugar. That’s right, it gets all of it’s sweetness from the fruit alone. And since we used almond milk, it’s vegan, too.

If you’re planning to make a lot of smoothies, you’re going to want a really great blender. We used a Nutri Ninja for this melon smoothie, since it was just one serving. If you’re going to be making a batch of melon smoothies for the whole gang, you might want something like a larger Ninja Blender or even a Vitamix blender.
