GOLDEN MELON MINT



Plant-Based, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free



I recently got a peppermint plant and have been amazed at how much flavor just a few leaves can add to any recipe. This smoothie bowl combines mint with golden colored fruits for a hydrating, cooling blend. Cantaloupe melon goes surprisingly well with peppermint, and the coconut yogurt gives a gentle softness to the flavors. This is one of the lightest smoothie recipes and has a sweet sorbet texture.
