Melon Cake (not a cake; a smoothie!)

Published January 9, 2012 by Polana Fowdrey

I don’t know how I’ve done it, but I seem to have created a green smoothie that tastes a bit like a cake! (Well actually, I do… it’s like this:)

Melon Cake

Make approx 2 pints (depending on amount of water used)

Equipment: Blender, nut milk bag, bowl

Ingredients:

1/2 Honeydew melon

3 handfuls baby spinach leaves

1 banana

1 tsp lucuma powder

1tsp coconut oil (solid)

Water to blend (or coconut water)

Method

Blend the melon and coconut in just enough water to blend smoothly (you may not need water if you have a high-speed blender – I don’t, but water stops the smoothie being to strong. Go with your taste)The coconut will emulsify with the water, making the smoothie look milky.

Add the spinach and lucuma powder and blend until smooth.

Pour the mixture into a nut milk bag and strain into a bowl.

Rinse the blender and pour the juice back in.

Add the banana and blend smooth.

Enjoy you cake! =)

Now, that’s going to bead my winter baked food cravings!

If you don’t have any Lucuma, try a dash of maple syrup!)
