raspberry melon green smoothie

Green smoothie of the day!

Raspberry Melon Green Smoothie
2 cups fresh spinach
1 sprig fresh mint
2 handfuls frozen cantaloupe
1 handful frozen raspberries
1.5 cups almond milk
1 teaspoon bee pollen/spirulina/wheatgrass
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Raw honey (preferably local) to taste

This is enough for only one smoothie. The fruit was fresh that I froze myself. Not necessary to use it frozen but it makes it nice and cold ๐Ÿ™‚ I personally did not think it needed honey but you can if you’d like it sweeter. Raw honey, virgin coconut oil, and the bee pollen mix have lots of nutritional benefits but are not essential to the smoothie. Put everything in the blender and blend it up! Enjoy! It was delish ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I can make this work with what I have on hand. ๐Ÿ™‚ The only thing I don’t have -and don’t know anything about- is the bee pollen/spirulina/wheatgrass. Teach me!

  2. Mmmm… green! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t love cantaloupe, but it might be better with raspberry’s tartness to balance! We have been doing these lately too. I have been using coconut butter instead of coconut oil, which is pretty tasty & has the fiber. It is pricey though. I made my own last time, but it isn’t as smooth and took a long time… and I really thought the cuisinart might die. I think I’ll just suck it up and buy it in the future.

    • Oh, good to know! I just bought a lot of coconut to make butter so hmmm, we will see how it goes… lol
      I’ll post my “Coconut Treats” tomorrow if I have time they are so good!
