Smoothie of the Month: melon, kiwi and lime

melon kiwi lime smoothie recipe

For me summer time is fruit time. I do eat fruit during other times of year, but in summer so many more fruits are in season, they become cheaper and most of them taste much better than in winter. That's why in this month's smoothie I decided to combine fruits that I only eat in summer: melons and golden kiwis. I am crazy about golden kiwis, even though I am not a fan of the regular ones. I always wait for the summer so I can enjoy them, cause they are not even sold over here in winter time. I have a weird relationship with melons though, sometimes I like them and other times not so much. But I definitely love them in my smoothies, they add a creamy texture and enhance the taste of other fruits. I also added lime juice for extra freshness and tart taste. So if you like your drinks sour feel free to squeeze two limes into this smoothie. If tart drinks is not your thing, reduce to only one lime or skip it altogether and add a sweetener, like maple syrup.

This smoothie is super fresh and summery, the taste of it makes me want to go to the beach, even though it is still too cold for that here in Helsinki. Hopefully is gets warmer soon and I can make this smoothie to enjoy on the beach.
