Crazy Cooking Challenge-Fruit Smootie Edition

It's round two for me in this Crazy Cooking Challenge, and this month's Challenge was Fruit Smooties & Shakes.

This was a tough one for me believe it or not!
Although I've been known to smootie up anything, I had a hard time finding something unique and different that would not only catch my attention, but also my taste buds.
Then I found this recipe.
 
 
Honeydew Smoothies
from
A Bunch of Bishops
Now, not only does she have some of the cutest kids ever, Janiene
is full out creative and crafty!
I just happened to stumble across her page recently and was so excited when she linked up to Sweet & Simple Sunday. I love finding new friends in the blogosphere (well in real-life too, but blogosphere friends totally rock!)
Anyways, I was even more excited when I realized that I had most of the ingredients on hand for these Honeydew Smooties.
And since I've realized that I'm an adult and needed to have appropriate working appliances in my home, I actually have a blender I'm totally happy with.
(Who knew that Strawberry Daquiri's could break down a blender so fast?! I think it was my way of reliving the time spent at the Tiki Bar on our Honeymoon)
Anywho, here's what you'll need for this sweet & summery drink
 
Scoop out the flesh of 1/2 of an organic honeydew melon
1 cup organic plain whole milk yogurt
2 tbsp honey
1-1/2 cups ice

Now just blend her up and enjoy! That's it! Smoothie Simplicity!
Now I do have to admit, I changed it up a bit, but only because I didn't have the plain organic yogurt in my fridge. I had a container of peach Oikos Greek yogurt so that's what I mixed it and it was great! I'm sure that any kind of yogurt would work just perfect in this recipe.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all of the amazing Fruit Smooties & Shakes in this month's Crazy Cooking Challenge!

    1. They are so good. I'm in love with these! I changed it up a bit this morning, I used peach organic yogurt and 1/4 block of firm organic tofu to add a little protein. Yummy!!

  3. You know what's funny Kim? I totally noticed your smoothie right after I liked mine and thought "that sounds yummy" it figures it was your post. ;)

    We'll be announcing the next GYCO on July 3rd. I can't wait for next month's CCC. I have a recipe in mind all ready and am starving just thinking about it.

  4. I don;t like honeydew, but my son does and in a smoothie (cuz I know it's healthy for you... maybe I can try it too). I have vowed to make smoothies once a day all summer long, breakfast or a dinner substitute on hot summer days and I can't wait to try ALL of the Crazy Cooking Challenge recipes from this month. Thanks so much for participating.

    1. I don't like honeydew either but there is just something about pairing it with tart yogurt that made me LOVE it! I still don't want to eat honeydew plain, but I have made these smoothies a few times now :)
