Creamy Cantaloupe Smoothie
Prep time
Total time
No added sugars are needed when your fruit is nice and ripe. For an even creamier protein shake, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of your favorite, dairy-free, vanilla protein powder.
Serves: 1 big serving or 2 modest ones
  • 1 cup ripe, frozen cantaloupe chunks
  • 1 ripe banana, small to medium in size
  • ½ to 1 cup unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
  • ½ cup crushed ice (optional)
  1. Place the frozen cantaloupe, banana, ½ cup milk beverage, and lemon juice (if using) in your blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. If it is too thick, blend in more of the milk beverage until it reaches your desired consistency.
  3. For a frostier smoothie, blend in the ice. .
Optional add-ins:
- If you don’t mind the color, toss in ½ to 1 cup of fresh spinach leaves. Spinach doesn’t touch the wonderful smoothie flavor, yet adds a good dose of nutrition.
- Ground flaxseeds, a tablespoon or two, for some of those great Omega-3’s and a little protein.
- Ground coconut, a tablespoon or two, for flavor and if you are a coconut for health fanatic like myself. (Adds a bit of fat too if you are concerned about the little ones not getting enough)
