Vanilla Melon Smoothie – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Smoothies are a great way to get your vitamins in one quick drink and in the summer months when fresh fruit is readily available, they become even more delicious.  I love a light smoothie without a lot of ingredients and this recipe for Vanilla Melon Smoothie fits the bill.  I add chunks of fresh melon, a little vanilla protein powder, vanilla extract and a splash of coconut milk to give this smoothie a melon creamsicle flavor.

Smoothies are an easy start to a great day and if later, you are looking for a fun cocktail idea, omit the protein powder and add vanilla Greek yogurt and a splash of vodka for a fun melontini – Cheers!

1 scoop vanilla protein powder or 1 cup Green vanilla yogurt
