Okay, I went through about a million pun titles for this smoothie. This may be the silliest one, but I’m sticking with it. Also considered were the “Melon-ie Griffith” smoothie and the “Dope Cantaloupe.”
Fun fact: Once in my first year of school I went to a spelling bee so I could get some free food. I got one round away from the end and “Cantaloupe” did me in.
Fortunately, this smoothie is way nicer than that spelling bee. In fact, it has a very easy taste that makes it easy to go down. It’s super smooth, and fresh enough that you just want to put an umbrella in it. And, I mean, why not? It’s spring, after all!
“You Cantaloupe Handle the Truth” smoothie
- One banana
- 1 cup cubed cantaloupe
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 pinch cinnamon
- 1 tsp virgin coconut oil, slightly softened
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
- 1 scoop protein powder (optional)
Simply blend all of the ingredients until it’s super smooth (trust me, it will become velvety smooth!)
This smoothie will fill you up without feeling heavy and cam make you feel super healthy and fresh even if it isn’t a green smoothie — yes, there are healthy smoothies besides green smoothies!
