Strawberry Cantaloupe Smoothie is fruity, sweet and refreshing mixing strawberry, cantaloupe, banana, milk, honey and chia seeds. This smoothie makes the perfect morning pick me up or afternoon snack.
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 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 smoothies are a great hands on thing you can do together. The kids can measure the frozen fruit and other ingredients, pour them into the blender and push the button to blend it up.
