Fresh melon (cantaloupe, honeydew, or other varieties) makes a refreshing addition to smoothies and other fruit drinks, including this one, which relies on a ripe banana and water or ice, rather than yogurt or any dairy, in the spirit of having a lighter, more refreshing drink for any time of day. And you don't need a juicer, just a good blender to achieve the desired consistency. Fresh mint adds brightness.

- 1 banana (ripe)
- 200 milliliters cold water (or ice)
- 2 mint leaves
