Juicy melon, fresh lime juice and tropical coconut oil make this a sweet, refreshing --and nutritious - smoothie for warm summer days.
Coconut oil is solid at room temperature. It has a melting temperature of 76 degree F (24 degree C), so it is easy to liquefy. To melt it, place in a shallow glass bowl over a pot od simmering water.
To boost the protein content of your smoothie, try adding a scoop of your favorite protein powder -- I prefer hemp or sprouted brown rice protein. Both are available in natural foods store and well-stocked supermarket. Not all are raw, though, so be sure to read the labels.
1 cup Nut milk 250mL
1/2 cup chopped honeydew 125mL
3tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice 45mL
2tbsp. melted coconut oil 30mL
1/4tsp. raw vanilla extract
In a blender combine nut milk, melon, lime juice, coconut oil and vanilla. Blend at high speed until smooth. Serve immediately. Make 2 cups (500mL)
Variation: If you prefer a sweeter smoothie. add 1 to 2 tbsp. (15 - 30mL) raw agave nectar to taste.
Substitute an equal amount of cantaloupe for the honeydew melon and 1tbsp. (15mL)coconut butter for coconut oil.
