This recipe is best prepared in a high-powered blender such as a Vita-Mix. If a smaller blender is used, we suggest that the recipe be cut in half for each batch.
It is also best to refrigerate the fruit several hours before preparing the Fruit Smoothie. To make the Smoothie even colder, the Banana could be peeled, cut into pieces and frozen.
Thoroughly wash the Honeydew Melon and strawberries. Cut the honeydew melon into sections. Remove the seeds and rind. Place into the blender. Add the peeled Bananas, the stemless strawberries and flaxseed (The flaxseed adds omega 3 fatty acid, an essential nutrient). If the fruit is warm, we suggest adding 1 or 2 cups of ice.
Cover the blender container and run the blender at high speed until the contents are thoroughly blended into the Smoothie (about 1-minute). Serve in a tall glass with a straw, and enjoy.
A Fruit Smoothie also makes a great breakfast.
