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.

If you are trying to involve your kids more in the kitchen, smoothie recipes are a great hands on thing you can make together.  The kids can measure the frozen fruit and other ingredients, pour them into the blender and push the button to blend it up.

WHAT ELSE CAN I ADD TO THIS SMOOTHIE?

  • Try adding a teaspoon or two of chai seeds. Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids- they are great for your body! 
  • Add a scoop of protein powder to the smoothie. Give yourself that extra boost of protein. 
  • Create a creamier smoothie by adding a 1/2 cup of plain yogurt or Greek yogurt. I love the tangy flavor that Greek yogurt adds, not to mention the protein. 
  • You can add whatever fruit you have on hand. I do strawberry, cantaloupe and banana in this smoothie but any fruit will work to accompany the strawberry and cantaloupe.
