Melon Refresher

The best time to eat watermelon is NOW. It tastes the best now, is most nutritious now and is cheapest now, so chow down now. It is hot and we need lots of fluid, melon is perfect for summer.

So simple and delicious. Add honey if you need a sweeter drink, but this time of the year the melons are so sweet on their own. I have tried this with many varieties of melon and they all made an excellent drink.

This recipe makes yummy popsicles too. I just made some last night with yellow honeydew, a bit of kale and dulse. They were a brilliant green and the kids gobbled them up today.

4 cups chopped melon
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 tablespoon flax oil (optional)

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.


  1. I was just looking for a yummy popsicle recipe for Luthien's birthday- can't wait to try! Thanks!

  2. We always love watermelon smoothies---I never thought to put flaxseed oil in. Cool! Do you think they would make good popscicles? Would the oil make them not freeze as well?

  3. This may be a stupid question but do you do anything to the kale before you use it for popsicles? Or just use it raw?

  4. The only stupid questions are ones I already answer in my post;) This one has not been addressed, so I will consider it a brilliant question.

    I just wash the kale, cut off the very end where it has turned brown, and toss it in, stem and all.


It's rude to eat and run. Humor me with conversation please!
