Heavenly Honeydew
This super-hydrating, low-calorie smoothie is sweetened by banana and honeydew—both rich in blood pressure-lowering potassium. It’s best made in the height of the summer when naturally sweet and juicy honeydew are at their peak. Tip: The better the melon tastes when you freeze it, the better your smoothie will taste!

Cherry Kiwi Kiss
Kiwi are an excellent source of vitamin C, which helps boost your immune system and protect against heart disease. In fact, a kiwi is packed with more vitamin C than an equal amount of orange! Blend this tangy fruit with the sweetness of antioxidant-rich cherries and strawberries for a nutritional powerhouse.
