Let's blend breakfast together!
This refreshing, fruity smoothie is chockfull of antioxidants to help fight free radicals.
- 2 cups spinach (fresh)
- 1 sprig mint (fresh)
- 1 cup water (optional)
- 2 cups cantaloupe (ripe and rind removed)
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1 apple
- 1/2 lime (fresh squeezed)
- Blend spinach, mint leaves, and ripe cantaloupe until smooth.
- Next add the remaining fruits and blend again.
You do not need to add a liquid-base to this recipe because of the high water content in ripe cantaloupes. Use at least one frozen fruit to make the green smoothie cold. Cantaloupe can be cut into small cubes and frozen overnight.
