Cantaloupe Smoothie

My AC DIED! I’m not kidding. When I was making my panini yesterday the kitchen was starting to get really hot. But I figured it was just because I had an open griddler actively heating up the kitchen. Well, I’m sitting at my computer, on the other side of the house, sweating. Legitimate sweat. I checked on the temp in the place, sweltering 90 degrees. I literally just heated up my house with an open griddler to an seriously uncomfortable temperature. I also only have one smaller fan that I’ve just been carrying around the house with me.

The AC guy is supposed to come fix this sucker at 10 this morning, it’s now 11. Obviously. So my original plan of an little twist on the traditional oatmeal, will have to wait. The only real option was a smoothie. And the creamy, deliciously COLD cantaloupe smoothie was born.

I really do recommend this to people. I had some cantaloupe already chopped in the fridge just begging to be used, and it was a perfect fruit to add because it’s so light and refreshing. It was extremely refreshing and FILLING!

Ingredients:

2 Full Bananas (Frozen)                                               1/2 Cantaloupe, Chopped

1 Tablespoon Honey                                                       1 Cup Non-Fat Greek Yogurt

4 Tablespoons Orange Juice                                       2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

2 Tablespoons of Fat Free-Milk

Directions:

1. Put all ingredients into a blender.

2. Pour into a glass and Drink Up!

My bananas were not frozen, so I just added about 10 cubes of ice to make the drink more frozen. You don’t want to add too many ice cubes because you will end up changing the texture of the smoothie and this is a very creamy smoothie.

Brent and I both had two healthy glasses and there was still leftovers. Perfect for an afternoon snack. store practically all of my leftovers for ANYTHING in a MASON jar. They are air sealed and allow everything to be stored for a much longer period of time. You would be amazed at how long you can get fresh vegetables to last in one of these things. There are all different sizes, and they cost just about 10 bucks for 10 of them at Target. Much cheaper than Tupperware.

Also, when your food, especially the health food, is in clear containers that are right in the front of the fridge, you are more likely to pick up that item than the ice cream behind it. It just looks more delicious! True life.

Happy Eating!
