Start the morning with a cool, creamy, sippable cantaloupe smoothie. Melon = mellow.
Yep, I’m still at it with the fruit. Seriously, I’ve never been on a fruit kick quite like this one. I’m even getting into fruits that I’m not typically a big fan of, like cantaloupe. I usually go for more sharp flavors, but I’m learning to appreciate mellowness in all areas of life. Including fruit.
I know all you melon fans are way ahead of me, but cantaloupe is such a mellow flavor. It’s calm, cool and collected. That’s a good note to start the day on. No matter what’s going on, cantaloupe’s just chillin.
I had this cantaloupe smoothie for breakfast the other day, with an orange on the side. I made it by freezing the fruit and then blending it, my favorite smoothie method at the moment. I wanted a little flavor in there to compliment the cantaloupe but not overpower it, so I tossed in some orange…I loves my oranges.
It tasted just like I wanted: cantaloupe with a boost. I loved the sweet, mellow flavor, and I felt really good all morning. Cantaloupe’s a great source of potassium and B vitamins, which probably had a lot to do with me feeling so good.I didn’t take many pics. The siren call of cantaloupe smoothie was too strong. Smooth and mellow…a lovely beginning to the day.
