If you'd like a sweeter smoothie, add a little agave or use sweetened almond milk. I thought it was perfect without either but it depends on the ripeness of the melon. This recipe makes a very large serving - possibly 2 servings - but I don't mess around and make skimpy smoothies! It would, however, be very easy to cut in half for a smaller size.
|I had an unexpected visitor right when I poured this so the picture was taken after it sat for about 5 minutes. It wasn't so melty-looking at first!|

Do YOU think this tastes like a creamsicle?
