I love using fresh fruit and I’m always trying to think of ways to incorporate fruit into our diet. I recently tried incorporating cantaloupe into our diet and I came up with this fruit drink. My Refreshing Cantaloupe Slush is packed full of fruit.
I love serving this drink to my kids because I know they are getting a nutritious drink. I try to make large batches of this, which keeps the family away from those non-healthy type of drinks.
If you make this drink in the evening and let it chill it is perfect with breakfast the next morning. It is a welcome change over milk or other fruit juices. It has a unique tropical flavor that makes you want to come back for more. When I can’t find cantaloupe on sale or when it isn’t in season, I go to my trusty Banana Coconut Smoothie
recipe. This is another fresh and tropical drink, that I can’t get enough of.
1 cup cantaloupe cubes
1/3 cup pineapple chunks
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup frozen or canned peaches
1 teaspoon sugar
3 ice cubes
Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. For added flavor, use frozen orange juice concentrate.
