Berry Cantaloupe Smoothie

An easy cantaloupe smoothie with frozen berries, yogurt and a touch of honey.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup milk (of choice)
  • ½ cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 2 cups frozen cubed cantaloupe*
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries

Instructions

  1. Place the milk, Greek yogurt, honey (if using), frozen cantaloupe and berries in a blender pitcher.
  2. Secure the lid and puree until smooth, scraping the sides if needed. If the smoothie is thicker than desired, add a tablespoon of milk at a time until the desired consistency is reached.
  3. Pour the smoothie into 2 cups and garnish with frozen fruit and fresh herbs, if desired.

Notes

To freeze cantaloupe: Peel, seed and cube a whole fresh cantaloupe. Transfer 2 cups of the cubed cantaloupe into a large sealable plastic bag or airtight container. Freeze at least 30 minutes or up to 2 weeks. Add directly to the blender so you don’t have to water your smoothie down with ice.

Smoothie Add-Ins:

  • 1 scoop unflavored protein powder
