Another healthy way to use up fruit.
- 2 cups cantaloupe, chunks
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ice cube (to thicken) (optional)
- Blend all in blender until smooth.
Let me start by saying I hate cantaloupe, although I know it's good for you. I forced myself to eat it when pregnant. My kids like it, so I wanted to try this. Wow! This is awesome! It does taste like a creamsicle. If I had made this, I would have willingly eaten it when pregnant! :lol: I made as directed, using agave nectar for honey and added a little plain yogurt. Next time I will try freezing the cantaloupe to make it thicker rather than adding ice cubes and watering down the delicate flavor. So good! Thanks!
This was amazingly refreshing. I did add a heaping tablespoon of vanilla yogurt. I also used a little trick I learned about making fruit smoothies; freeze the fruit in small chunks before putting in the blender. You end up with a texture almost like soft sherbet. I was wonderful and can't wait to have it again.
