For a healthy and refreshing summer breakfast!

Muskmelon Coconut Smoothie
Muskmelon Coconut Smoothie

A healthy, refreshing summer drink with sweetness of muskmelon and creaminess of coconut milk, this easy 5 minutes breakfast smoothie will help you start your day, full and focused! 

Melons, from muskmelons to watermelons, are favorite seasonal fruits of everyone in my family. Our every visit to farmer's stand, we bring a melon home. Since melon are relatively larger fruit, I'm always up for challenge to try new ways to eat melon! During this time of year, melons are naturally very sweet and juicy. Other than adding to salads or sorbets, smoothies is one my personal favorite to enjoy fresh melon taste. I think natural sweetness of melons make'em perfect for smoothies! 

Gluten Free Buckwheat Doughnuts

Plus they are also high in water content which is great to keep body replenished during summer. Amazingly, melons are very low in fat calories and are also high in fiber... which can help you stay full longer!

What else will you ask for a great start of a hot summer day??

1. Lite and healthy breakfast which is also high in fiber.
2. Refreshing and served cold.
3. Quick and easy to put on breakfast table.
4. Above all, something which taste great!

This smoothie, my friends, fulfill all of the above criteria and even more with a good serving of, super-food, coconut!

I have used no-sugar coconut water as base to add good amount of potassium and electrolytes (that you loose through sweating) in this smoothie. Also, coconut milk I have used, is lite coconut milk to avoid too many fat calories. 

Caution! Regular Coconut Milk can be high in fat calories. Always opt for lite coconut milk. You can substitute lite coconut milk for traditional coconut milk to cut almost two-thirds the fat and calories without sacrificing flavor!
