This Honeydew Smoothie is an incredibly refreshing way to start the day! It's made with honeydew and lightly sweetened with dates and coconut for a light and delicious smoothie recipe.
Honeydew doesn't get the credit it deserves. It's incredibly versatile, affordable and refreshing. In my opinion, it's perfectly delicious on its own, but even more delicious in smoothie form.
- A fresh way to enjoy honeydew
- An easy smoothie recipe that's ready in just 5 minutes!
- Lightly sweetened with dates, and it's is dairy-free and vegan-friendly
Honeydew - Buy a whole one, cut it up and then use 1 cup of it for this smoothie, and save the rest for later or to eat on its own
Spinach - Can sub other kind of greens if you prefer. I like spinach because you really can't taste it, but you could sub 1/2 cup of kale instead
Dates - Medjool or Deglet, just make sure they're pitted.
Oats - Rolled or old fashioned, not quick, and if you're gluten free make sure to use certified gluten free oats
Coconut - Preferably unsweetened, since this smoothie is already fairly sweet on its own
Milk - Any kind! I usually opt for almond or oat.
FAQs and Tips
I recommend purchasing a whole honeydew rather than pre-cut honeydew. Typically, pre-cut honeydew isn't as fresh, mostly because it was cut days prior. Plus, cutting honeydew yourself takes less than 5 minutes, and it'll make the smoothie taste better, trust me!
Substitutions: See the ingredients list above
Can I make this ahead of time?
You can! You can make any smoothie the night before, but just know that the texture will be a bit different, and you'll definitely have to stir the smoothie well before drinking it.
