Golden Dragon Melon Green Smoothie

Posted by on Sep 13, 2013 in Recipes | 0 comments

One of my favorite things to do these days is to go to grocery stores and scour the produce section for fruits and vegetables that I haven’t tried before or can’t get all that often and see what I can do with them.  One day last week I was really struggling with jet lag and needed to get out of the office and go for a quick walk to re-energize myself.  I decided to go to a nearby Korean grocery store and check it out.  There I found some beautiful golden dragon melons! 

The melons are small, about five inches long, and oval-shaped. They have quite a soft yellow outer skin and a crunchy white flesh.  In texture and bit they are similar to honeydew, but have their own distinct taste.  I really enjoyed them!

Of course, after having a taste of the fruit itself, I decided to use it for what I tend to use all fruit for: a green smoothie!  This combination is particularly delicious!
