AN EASY & HEALTHY SMOOTHIE RECIPE: 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 easy and healthy recipe 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!
Place the ingredients inside the blender.
- 2 peeled and chopped slices of cantaloupe
- 1 fresh peeled banana
- 3/4 of a carrot
- 1 cup of Silk Cashew Unsweetened Vanilla Milk
- 1 or 2 tbsp of Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal
Process in the blender for 10 seconds or until smooth.
** Optional: Almond Milk or Soy Milk (instead of Cashew Milk). Agave nectar, raw honey, or other liquid sweetener, optional. Ice cubes.
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 2-3 years: Oster Blender & Smoothie Cup ($89.99). 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.
