Basil-Mint Melon Smoothie | Breakfast

Cantaloupe is the most popular variety of melon in the United States and it's easy to see

why. Succulently sweet and a great source of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant, this

fruit is nothing less than a big ball of joy. Here I've dressed it up with a handful of herbs

and a touch of extra sweetness. You really can't go wrong!


Cantaloupe, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks - 4 cups

Large banana - 2 each

Fresh basil leaves - 1 tablespoon

Fresh Mint Leaves - 1 tablespoon

Ice - 2 cups OR filtered water - 1 cup

Garnish: small slices of cantaloupe


Place all of the ingredients, except the garnish in a high powered blender. Start on low, and then increase the speed to high. Blend until smooth.

Place a slice of cantaloupe on the edge of each glass, then serve.

Serves 2
