CANTALOUP SMOOTHIE 

This cantaloup smoothie is thick and luscious and really more like a fruit smoothie bowl.  It’s made with frozen cantaloupe chunks, fresh lime, and coconut water and the whole concoction is whipped into a frozen frosty eat-with-a-spoon (because it’s too thick for a straw) healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.

Growing up my mom always served cantaloupe and tomatoes whenever we’d have fried eggs and hash browns for breakfast.  So I grew up loving cantaloupe!   Then I became obsessed with it once I started making this cantaloupe smoothie bowl.

WHAT IS A SMOOTHIE BOWL

A smoothie bowl is a thick blend of fruits, vegetables and maybe nut milk poured into a bowl and eaten with a spoon like a meal rather than a drink sipped on through a straw.  It’s typically a little thicker than a smoothie and often times it’s topped with an assortment of fruits, berries, granola, etc.  

FRUIT SMOOTHIE BOWL RECIPE

This is a vegan smoothie bowl recipe using coconut water instead of dairy. 

  • Chop cantaloup in chunks and freeze in freezer bags for 1-2 hours, overnight is best.
  • 3 cups frozen cantaloupe chunks (or use a mix of melons chunks)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cups coconut water (more for desired consistency)
  • juice of 1 lime (or peel and seed and toss in the flesh of one whole lime)
  • 1/4 teaspoon honey (optional)
  • Garnish with coconut and hemp or chia seeds (optional)

HOW TO MAKE A SMOOTHIE BOWL

This easy smoothie bowl comes together in 5 minutes start-to-finish.  You’ll need to freeze the cantaloup pieces first though.

  1. Toss all of the ingredients in your NutriBullet, food processor or blender and blend.  
  2. Add a little more coconut water if it’s too thick.
  3. Top with fruits, nuts and seeds (optional).
  4. Serve with a spoon not a straw.

HOW TO PICK A CANTALOUPE

The best way to choose a cantaloupe is by smelling it.  It should smell sweet. And the stem end should slightly yield when pressed with your thumb. If the cantaloup isn’t quite ripe, let it sit at room temperature for up to 2 days to ripen.  Whole ripe uncut melon will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, and cut melon will keep for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

This refreshing melon fruit smoothie bowl makes a great addition to any breakfast or brunch table.   As far as favorites go…it’s right up there in my book next to this Summer Melon Salad with Honey Lime Dressing(which is also perfect for a hot summer night), this Mexican Gazpacho Fruit Salad (great to serve for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner) and this absolutely luscious and completely addicting Papaya Salad (I could eat this all day long).

A few reasons you might want to incorporate more cantaloupe into your diet is because it’s loaded with Vitamin C, beta-carotene and vitamin A, and it’s incredibly hydrating to the skin.  Keeps that skin of yours plump and glowing!!
