Cantaloupe Smoothie

/

A few weeks ago my mom had a big pool party and most of our family from the eastern shore came up as well. If you know anything about me and my family it's that we have about three times the amount of food we need to for the people we've invited.

It's apparently our trademark or something.

So, someone brought one of those huge fruit trays that you pick up at Costco. As usual (at least in my experience) the strawberries and pineapple were devoured, leaving the cantaloupe, honeydew and a huge pile of grapes behind. I told my mom I would take "some" fruit home.

Somehow "some" fruit turned into nearly two cups each of cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon. Knowing I couldn't possibly eat that much fruit before it went bad, I decided to get creative and put it into smoothies. This actually worked out really well since I was still have trouble eating solid foods.

Ingredients:
    • 1 cup cantaloupe, cut into chunks 
    • 1 large banana 
    • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
    • 2 tbsp. honey
    • 1 scoop protein powder, optional 
    • 1/2 cup ice
Directions:
1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth.



Cantaloupe ranks pretty highly on my least favorite fruits list so I was really unsure of if I was even going to like this or not. I ended up pleasantly surprised. The banana takes away from some of the cantaloupe flavor, but I found that I really liked it in pureed form. Who woulda thought?
