This recipe makes approximately four 12-oz. glasses of fruit smoothie. If you wish to make a smaller amount, cut the recipe in half. If the melon is small and the volume in the blender container is less that you desire, the volume can be extended by adding additional bananas and/or ice.
Begin by washing the Juan Canary melon. Cut it in half. (If you are using a high speed blender such as a Vita-Mix, scoop the seeds into the blender container. If you do not have a high speed blender, discard the seeds.)
Cut the melon into strips. Cut off the rind from each strip, and add the melon flesh to the blender container.
Add the flax seed to the melon in the container.
Peel the bananas and add the bananas to the blender container.
Add the ice, cover the container, and run the blender at high speed until the contents are creamy smooth, using the tamper as required.
Serve and enjoy!
