Frozen Honeydew Mint Grape Shake

Two Carolines - Refreshing Honeydew Mint Grape Shake.jpg

Hellllllooooooo SUMMER!! **Said in my best Oprah voice**

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s gotten pretty hot out around these parts. And all I want in the summer is refreshing slushy drinks. My friend made a version of this for me a while back and I have thought about it on every hot day since. This is SO refreshing and so simple to make, it should be a summer staple. It’s even pretty healthy but tastes like dessert, so it’s a winner all around!

  • 1 cup frozen honeydew
  • 1 cup frozen green grapes (red if you want this a bit sweeter)
  • 1/4 oz. fresh mint leaves
  • 2 cups milk of your choice (I use a coconut/almond blend and it adds the perfect touch of flavor and slight sweetness)
  • 1 half can of lemon/lime soda of your choice (you can eliminate this and add more milk if you want to keep it more healthy, but the bubbles add a nice subtle kick)

Blend all ingredients together until you have a slushy shake. Add more or less milk depending on desired consistency. Drink and find a hammock enjoy these magical summer days!

Note: This recipe is kind of loosey-goosey. You can adjust any or all of the ingredients, depending on desired consistency and sweetness. Also, it’s important that the grapes and honeydew are frozen or it will be a mushy mess!
