I wanted to create a sweet, creamy smoothie that was dairy-free but still tastes great & has an indulgent mouth-feel.
BOOM! The Cantaloupe & Almond Milk Smoothie is just the thing. It has a smooth texture and is sweet with a flavor reminiscent of a 50/50 bar without being overbearing. It’s also a super-healthy fruit that’s loaded with potassium and B vitamins including B1, B3, B6, and folate, plus Vitamin K, magnesium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, and fiber. Calorie wise, a medium-sized melon only contains about 186 calories!
Here’s my super-simple recipe:
- 1/2 ripe cantaloupe melon, seeds removed (you can eat them, but I don’t like them in my smoothie)
- 1 cup organic unsweetened almond milk
- 1/4 teaspoon organic black chia seeds (optional)
- Blend until smooth and Enjoy!
