Cantaloupe Smoothie

Cantaloupe Smoothie

If on a hurried morning you eat nothing but this smoothie, you will still be doing your body a favor. The drink packs a powerful punch of potassium, calcium, vitamin C and beta carotene.


1 ripe banana
1/4 ripe cantaloupe
1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat yogurt
2 Tbsp. skim-milk powder
1 1/2 Tbsp. orange-juice concentrate
2 tsp. honey
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
To make:

  1. Place unpeeled banana in the freezer overnight or for up to 3 months.

  2. Remove banana from the freezer and let it sit for 2 minutes, or until the skin begins to soften. With a paring knife, remove the skin. (Don’t worry if a little fiber remains.) Cut the banana into chunks and put in a blender or food processor.

  3. Seed the cantaloupe quarter and cut the flesh from the rind. Cut the flesh into chunks and add to the blender. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.

Makes 1 serving.
