STRAWBERRY CANTALOUPE SMOOTHIE

By now you know my love for smoothies.

I like all kinds of smoothies but my favorite are the fruity kind.  

Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits so they usually make an appearance in the fruity smoothies, especially as the weather starts to warm up.

Today’s Strawberry Cantaloupe Smoothie recipe is now on our regular smoothie rotation and it is a tasty one.

From time to time my kids and I will have a special lunch date at our favorite Lebanese restaurant Aladdin’s. 

Their menu is pages and pages of Middle Eastern inspired foods from hummus, to tabbouleh, to pita pitzas, to wraps and so much more.  

It is my happy place.

Aladdin’s is a great place to take the kids because the kids menu is full of healthy choices.  

I get bothered with a lot of the restaurants out there because the kids menus are so unhealthy.  

You see things like fried chicken tenders, hot dogs, french fries and pizza.  

If I want my kids to have a vegetable with their meal I usually have to order a separate side dish or give them some of mine.

That is just not OK!  

Aladdin’s offers a great selection for the kiddos like grilled chicken with rice pilaf, hummus and pita, cut fresh fruit and more.

When we go to lunch one of Will’s favorite things to do is pick out a new smoothie for us to try.  

Aladdin’s has an extensive list of fresh smoothies and juices that never disappoint.

Today’s Strawberry Cantaloupe Smoothie is inspired by a smoothie we had there recently that we both fell in love with.  

Later that week, we decided that we had to recreate it and have been making it pretty regularly ever since.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THIS STRAWBERRY CANTALOUPE SMOOTHIE?

MILK

STRAWBERRIES

CANTALOUPE

BANANA

HONEY

CHIA SEEDS {OPTIONAL} 

WHAT OTHER INGREDIENTS CAN I ADD IN SMOOTHIES?

HEMP SEEDS: Do you use hemp seeds? They are great in smoothies and they are packed with so much power. 1 Tablespoon of those small seeds is 5 grams of protein.

That will help keep you feeling full and give you the energy you need. I suggest adding it to your smoothies if you have it on hand!

NUT BUTTER: Nut butters are another great way to add protein and help the texture of the smoothie. I find if my smoothie is too thin that adding a few Tablespoons or almond of peanut butter will help thicken it. 

SPIRULINA: Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and salt water. One Tablespoon of spirulina  of dried spirulina powder contains protein, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B3, copper and iron. This is another powerhouse ingredient you can add.

OATS: You might be thinking – oats? And yes, they are a great addition to smoothies. They will thicken it some but I actually like it. You can dump rolled oats straight into the blender. They help keep you full and give you energy thanks to the fiber!

PROTEIN POWDER: If you are looking to up your protein in-take, for example after workouts, try protein powder. There are a lot of varieties in the stores now and some are even flavored.

KITCHEN TOOLS YOU NEED FOR THIS RECIPE:

Vitamix Ascent Series: I love my Vitamix and use it almost daily. It can be on the pricey side but is fully worth the money for the job it does with smoothies and pureeing foods. 

Metal Straws: Help the environment and use metal straws instead of plastic straws that you throw out. These are the straws I use for my kids, Mike and I.
