On hot days like these, I’m so happy to have my new friend Vitamix by my side to mix up all kinds of refreshing smoothies. And because some of them are exceptionally tasty, I need to share a recipe with you today. This one is a great summer smoothie – like sunshine in a glass!
Perfect to sip on while laying in the grass; sitting on the dock with your feet dangling in the water; having breakfast on the balcony or while watching the clock at work to count the minutes until you can go out and have fun in the sun!
Summer Smoothie with Melon & Peach
- 1/2 cantaloupe melon (peeled and seeded)
- 1 juicy peach (seeded)
- juice of half a lemon
- 7 leafs of basil
- 1/4 cup of cold water or 3-5 ice cubes
Mix it all up in a blender until smooth and place in the fridge for a while (if not using ice cubes), since it’s best enjoyed cold.
