My Favorite Green Smoothie Featuring Honeydew

I have made several different green smoothies across the years and it looks like I found my favorite combination. The honeydew, the cucumber and the lime seem to be matches made in heaven.

Don’t discard the honeydew seeds, they are completely edible and very high in protein!

  1. Besides the smoothie you have taught me about honeydew seeds. Do you roast them or just let them dry?
