Refreshing Kiwano Fruit Smoothie Recipe

Refreshing kiwano melon smoothie recipe

As you may already know, I love experimenting with exotic fruits. I often visit markets and specialty grocery stores, hunting for new fruits and vegetables to try out.

One of these weird fruits is the kiwano fruit, otherwise known as horned melon. An interesting looking fruit that is a mix between a melon and a cucumber.

This kiwano fruit smoothie recipe with spinach and blueberry is surprisingly refreshing. Unfortunately I can’t make this smoothie all too often, because kiwanos are quite hard to find.

One of my absolute favorite tropical fruits is dragon fruit. The flavors, the texture, dragon fruit just ticks all the boxes for me.

Dragon fruit can be hard to find, but I’m lucky to live near a grocery store that often sells exotic treats such as dragon fruit. Sometimes I buy them in bulk so I can share them with others, but also to blend them with other fruits.

This particular dragon fruit smoothie recipe with blueberry is my favorite. It’s got all the right flavors, and works best in the morning or on a warm day.

Chocolate in smoothies, really? Yes! And these smoothies can still be considered healthy and nutritious, despite chocolate being one of the ingredients.

I don’t know about you, but I love chocolate. Dark chocolate, that is. And dark chocolate actually does have some surprising health benefits, as long as you consume it in moderation of course.

But chocolate, or cocoa powder, in smoothies is a whole different story. It would have never occurred to me to add chocolate to my smoothies, until my neighbor suggested to try it out.
