The Cantaloupe Smoothie Recipe Page

A cantaloupe smoothie is hard to beat. This type of fruit is a melon that belongs to the cucumber family giving it that nice hydrating feeling!

Known for being a low calorie food its natural sweetness will give an unexpected twist to your concoction, in a good way.

The vitamins, minerals, antioxidants etc... that are packed into this fruit will definitely take it up a notch, not to mention cantaloupe is a water-rich fruit which means less liquids are needed to make this smoothie work, it knows how to work-it all on its own!

Health Benefits of Cantaloupe

Vitamin C – is an essential water-soluble vitamin that plays a very important role in the protection, growth and repairs of tissues.

Cantaloupe is a rich source of this antioxidant that also helps to counteract the damage done by free radicals, which are cancer causing substances.

Vitamin A – is essential for healthy eyesight and also aids in healthy bone growth. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that acts as an antioxidant.

What does Fat-Soluble Mean?

Fat-soluble vitamins are stored by the body in organs such as the liver, and are used and pulled out of the reserves when other parts of the body need them.

Potassium – is a much needed mineral in the building up of the muscles, for heart activity and for the transmission of nerve impulses.

Eating foods that have a high potassium content lead to better physical strength and better mental energy. This mineral acts as an electrolyte which keeps the body in balance by carrying glucose and other nutrients to body's cells.

Magnesium – is also a much needed mineral that maintains the nerves system as well as muscle functions ie…helps to regulate blood pressure, strengthens bones etc... If you tend to have muscle weakness or spasms then it’s possible that you are prone to low levels of magnesium. Cantaloupes, per serving contain 21.2 mg.

Consumption Tips

Consume cantaloupes that are firm, but not hard. Avoid over-ripe, yellow, soft, looking-and-felling cantaloupe. Since cantaloupes are grown on the ground they often come out of the garden with dirt on them or in their cracks.

Before cutting your fruit be sure to thoroughly wash your cantaloupe so that you don’t end up with specks of dirt in the flesh of your cantaloupe.
