CANTALOUPE VEGGIE SMOOTHIE

Happy Monday!  When it’s time to have breakfast in the morning, I like to prepare something nutritious,

healthy and super quick to make.  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – so it’s important to provide your body with what it needs.  Growing up at my parent’s home, I recall hearing my dad say to us: ‘Who wants a bit of my smoothie?’ every-single-day.  His favorite (and only) smoothie has been Banana + Milk.  He has been preparing and drinking that same smoothie for the last TWENTY years!  And it is impossible to convince him to switch it up.

To update my dad’s ‘Classic Smoothie,’ 😉 I have been mixing fruits with vegetables for years.  Below you will find one that I love!

For me, this is the easiest way to eat 3 to 6 servings of fruits & vegetables every day of the week.

For you, let it be the smoothie that helps you jump-start your day.  Prepare & enjoy!

If you do not yet own a blender, you might be asking yourself – which do I buy?!  There are tons of blenders or juicers to choose from, and at various prices – it can be quite overwhelming!  I have been using the same blender DAILY for the last two-three years: Oster® Exact Blend™ 300 Blender & Blend-N-Go Cup ($39.99).  I chose the Oster because it is: (1) easy to wash, (2) super simple to use, (3) lightweight, and (4) does not take up much space.  This blender comes with multiple speed-control buttons.
