Melon. In a smoothie. It was something I hadn't considered before, mainly due to my penchant for devouring fresh melon before it ever lingered long enough to make a date with my immersion blender. But I wised up: I now buy twice as much melon and save half for breakfast the next day. How can I deny myself something so potassium-rich, energizing and refreshing as a smoothie fragrant with honeydew, cantaloupe, or watermelon?
