This smoothie uses melon seeds! Rich in vitamins, minerals and protein, tap into their nutrition by blending with water and straining out and discarding the solids.
2 cups spinach, collards or kale, stemmed ½ cup fresh mint, stemmed
2 cups melon, fresh or frozen (cantaloupe, galia, canary, piel de sapo…)
½ – 1 banana
1 kiwifruit — peeled
1 cup “melon seed water” (see note), or your alt-milk of choice, plus more for desired consistency
Ice as needed
Optional: ½ tsp cinnamon
Note: Blend the seeds and inner “melon goo” with 2 cups water until seeds are broken down. Strain through nut milk bag, very fine strainer or cheesecloth so you remove all seed shrapnel. Also a refreshing drink on its own!
Load the ingredients into your blender in the order listed. Blend at high speed until smooth and creamy.
