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.
great and easy to make
I made this for my sister and her friend. I'd give it a 3/5, but the two of them liked it enough to warrant a 4/5. I didn't have any orange juice on hand, so I squeezed the juice from a clementine or two into the blender.
Very Good! I added some Strawberries, as well as cut back a little on the OJ. My kids loved it!
Great summer breakfast or afternoon snack. I've made this twice, once following the recipe exactly and once adding a scoop of protein powder. This really does taste like a creamsicle made as directed, but the flavor didn't stand up well to the protein powder (maybe it was just the Whole Nectar brand though). Very easy and refreshing. Thanks.
This is a delicious smoothie! The first time I made it I omitted the honey, as my cantaloupe was very ripe and sweet. The second time I made it I omitted the honey and vanilla and added 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder. The protein powder made the smoothie a bit creamier without acutally adding cream. I really love this smoothie!
My family loved this & the kids kept asking for more. I will make again! my husband said it tasted like an Orange Julius.
This is terrific!! It really does taste like a creamsicle. I followed the recipe exactly. It is a great summer morning breakfast. I will definitely be making lots of these this summer.
