Cantaloupe Smoothie

I bought a cantaloupe last night when I did some grocery shopping. I was so proud of myself to look at my shopping cart and the items in my cart and to realize how healthy they all are. Except my youngest son asked me to buy him Mountain Dew which is a blue color. That was the only icky stuff in my cart.

And well, nothing was organic or grass fed, so essentially, all icky.  But let's just pretend everything was organic.

At any rate, I love cantaloupe and they were on sale for only 99 cents each, so I picked a ripe one. I know, I know, I've been trying to stay off fruit, but I just don't wanna. I actually felt like a “normal” person when we were on our vacation because I was able to eat fruit.

I thought it would be good mixed with some Cashew Vanilla [affiliate link] Ice Cream, no wait, Elena's Pantry calls it Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream.  I had some leftover from a couple of weeks ago. I thought this was a perfect way to use it up.

  • 1 cup cantaloupe, cubed
  • 3/4 cup Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream, frozen solid and chopped into hunks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend together.  Drink. Yummy.

    That picture is gorgeous. I tried a cantaloupe from the farmers market this summer. I couldn’t stop myself because the smell grabbed me as I walked past the table. It was so wonderful and sweet and juicy but I so regretted eating it. I wonder if there was something sprayed on it that soaked into the melon through the rind or if that was my reaction to fructose, but it was a horrible reaction. My neighbor got the rest of it already cut up into chunks. She has mentioned it several times about how much she enjoyed it and I can’t help but think, “I’m so glad she did, but I sure wish I could”. I could happily live forever without grains and sugar, but I am hoping to one day be able to eat tropical fruit and melons.

    KC, I remember you telling me about that. I know in the fields across the road from where I live they grow cantaloupe and they crop dust over there. I never thought of how horrible it is that we live right across the street from that. But they usually do it just before dawn in the morning so I hope it dissipates by the time I go outdoors. I hope you will be able to eat melons and tropical fruits one day, too.
