Banana Melon Smoothie

Switch up your typical fruit smoothie with melons! This smoothie has a mild, yet fresh, flavor - perfect for those experiencing side effects from head and neck cancer treatment, such as mouth sores and difficulty swallowing. High in protein and fiber, the Banana Melon Smoothie is perfect for an afternoon snack or an on-the-go breakfast. If you are sensitive to dairy, you can easily replace the whole milk for almond milk and use coconut or soy yogurt.

Serves: 2

Prep time: 5 minutes


1 small banana

1 cup frozen watermelon

1 cup frozen cantaloupe

1 cup frozen honeydew melon

2 tbsp chia seeds

1 cup whole milk

½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt


  1. Combine all ingredients in blender
  2. Blend until smooth

TIP: If you cannot find frozen melon, you can use fresh and add a handful of ice to thicken the smoothie. Freeze extra melon and watermelon that you chop up to have on hand to make this smoothie easily another day!
