Ingredients for kale Honey Dew Melon Smoothie
Let’s talk about Honey Dew Melon – though I am not a huge fan of Honey Dew Melon but I loved the flavor and the texture of this smoothie with the honey dew melon as one of the main ingredient. Honey Dew Melon with its smooth light green cover is a perfect choice for hot summer (summer is at its peak here) full of vitamin C, a good source of potassium , high in fiber and its Vitamin B6 content helps in boosting metabolism.
Kale as we all know is one of the supreme green leaves bombarded with all the possible nutrition like calcium, iron, potassium, vitamins and minerals and many more and it’s my favorite green food for smoothies.
I added chia seeds to add the benefit of super food and protein to my smoothie since it’s a post workout recovery drink and sweetened the smoothie with banana to add potassium and good carbs and blended with pure almond milk.
Every sip of Kale Honey Dew Melon Smoothie was heavenly and energizing.
This has become my everyday post workout smoothie till the summer lasts and fresh honey dew melons are available in all the stores. 🙂

Just made this smoothie for my husband and I…he is diabetic and we had just walked 5 miles, under the Florida sun😁.
YAY!!! So happy that you like this smoothie. Enjoy the sun 🙂
Excellent even without honey and chia seeds which I couldn’t find in the supermarket. Very light and refreshing 👍

This looks delicious! A juice bar just opened up down the street from me, and my favorite, the “Detox Greens” has honey dew– I had never thought of using it in juice/smoothies before, but I will definitely start! What a great summer drink.
