Refreshing Mint Cantaloupe Smoothie

Refreshing Mint Cantaloupe Smoothie

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.

Mint Cantaloupe Smoothie Ingredients

  • 4 cups cantaloupe
  • 3/4 cup coconut water (can use raw milk, coconut milk or even water)
  • 1/4 peeled cucumber
  • 4 mint leaves
  • Honey to taste (I like this brand.)
  • Ice (optional)

Put all ingredients in blender and blend away. Enjoy immediately. Makes about 3 servings.

Got stuck in a rut with smoothies – avocado, banana, spinach, rocket, home-made almond milk and a bit of frozen fruit being the staple. This has re-inspired me to get creative – your videos are good at doing that! 🙂 Thanks so much. Love El xxx
