Our Farmer’s Market has the most gigantic, organic cantaloupes this year. They are absolutely delicious… creamy and sweet.
But, I do have to say there’s almost a “pressure” to get through one. LOL! It takes us DAYS to finish a full melon in our family of 3. So, I decided it was time to start thinking of a good recipe that harnesses all that tasty cantaloupe for the power of good!
Being pregnant in the summer, I’m craving cool drinks like no one’s business, so I knew I was going to make a smoothie. I then started looking in fridge and we had too many cucumbers (another “hot” Farmer’s Market item right now) and I had some left over organic mint. Perfect!
The end result is a cool, icy treat that’s tasty and nutritious. I especially love the mint because it’s great for digestion and heartburn, a common side effect of pregnancy.
