Summer Smoothies

6d0cb-img_4570I can only blend so many “classic” berry-banana smoothies…  The following smoothies feature more sophisticated fruit pairings.
Strawberry Watermelon with Ginger (pictured above)

Combine 3 cups cubed and seeded watermelon, 2 cups frozen strawberries, 1.5 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger, and 1.5 teaspoons fresh lime juice in blender.  Process until smooth. Serves two.

The above smoothie is not for the faint of heart. The ginger really adds a punch.  Also, make sure to hull your strawberries before freezing them so that all of the ingredients can easily blend.

Honeydew Kiwi with Mint

Combine 2 cups cubed and seeded honeydew melon, 1 cup cubed and peeled kiwi, 10 large fresh mint leaves, 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, 1 tablespoon honey, and 2 cups crushed ice in blender.  Process until smooth. Serves two.  Just remember that your smoothie will only be as good as the fruit you put in it! Make sure your kiwis are ripe, otherwise, the bitterness will overpower the delicate honeydew flavor.

I am a lawyer-turned-baker. 
I left my 9-5 office job because I wanted to create recipes, videos, and most of all—Bake! I won the Great American Baking Show, and my debut cookbook Life Is What You Bake It contains some of the winning recipes! My motto is simple: When life gives you lemons, make lemon curd. We have the power to turn tart situations into sweet ones, and it’s my mission to teach people how.
