Summer of Smoothies: Mint Magic

July 14, 2011

This week’s smoothie is a light, refreshing, treat, sure to beat the midsummer heat. Its base of honeydew melon provides hydration, vitamin C and potassium, and the mint refreshes with its vitamins A and C. Add the lime and grapes and you have a healthy version of a mojito – and this cocktail can be enjoyed by everyone!

Mint is historically said to have magical properties related to happy travels and money, which is perfect for right about now: whether or not these spells work in the modern age is not ours to say. But the Mint Magic Smoothie is so delicious it’s definitely worth a try!

    Mint makes everything better! That sounds so refreshing and not overly sweet with the added mint – would give it a crispness. Love it!
