Festive smoothie to give a try

McALESTER — Thinking green for Irish reasons?

There’s a smoothie to try as we prepare for wamer weather in springtime.

Carefully consider whether or not mint should be in your smoothie before blending 10 leaves. Mint can be over-bearing. If there’s reservations, toss it out and use as garnish.

Honeydew Kiwi Smoothie

2 c of cubed honeydew melon

1 1/4 c. of sliced kiwi

10 large mint leaves

1 tablespoon lime juice

1 tablespoon honey

2 c crushed ice

Directions: Add all ingredients in a blender and blend to favored consistancy. Makes 2 servings.
