Are you looking for an easy-to-make refreshing summer smoothie? Then, our delicious melon banana smoothie is definitely a must-try! Prepared with low-carb fruit and health-boosting ingredients, it will surely become your new favourite.

Cantaloupe melon and watermelon are not only iconic summer fruits but also some of the best low-sugar fruits, like berries. Moreover, they’re rich in vitamin A and C which help to keep healthy skin and fight free radicals.

Even if we’ve made this melon smoothie without yogurt, it’s still super creamy thanks to the blended banana and flaxseeds. Ground flaxseeds also boost this recipe with nutrients, like omega-3 fats and proteins.

Here at Foodaciously we love making smoothies, as they’re a convenient way to eat more fruit and vegetables and make a great ally to any weight loss plan.

Tips

  • For a protein boost, you can swap coconut water with yoghurt, like Greek or soy yoghurt.

  • If you keep the seeds of melon and watermelon, you'll get so much more fibres and precious nutrients. And as they get blended, you won't even taste them!
