A Summer Sensation: Cantaloupe MilkAug 01, 2023
Summer breezes call for ease — and it doesn’t get much easier than this one!
I don’t know about you, but I wait all year for the sweet, juicy fruits of summer — and yet, sometimes, sadly, they disappoint. Let’s talk cantaloupe for example. It’s really difficult to pick the perfect one in the market — sometimes they’re too hard, or they lack flavor or the texture is too mealy. Bummer. But you can’t know until you cut in.
Regardless, they still pack an immune-boosting, nutritional and digestive punch — and I’ve got the simplest recipe in the world to save the day!
- ½ Ripe Cantaloupe
- 1/8 cup of water (or a creamier substitute like almond, cashew or coconut milk)
- 1 tsp of maple syrup
- Cut your cantaloupe into cubes discarding the seeds
- Toss into your blender
- Add a splash of liquid of your choice
- Add maple syrup
Et voila! That’s it. Refreshing. Nutritious. Delicious.
