If you peruse my smoothie recipes, you’ll know that fresh ginger is my favorite ingredient to any blended breakfast. I have to say that my second favorite smoothie addition–and one that I really only crave in the summer–is fresh melon. It’s even more superb if the melon is frozen. I’ve made some incredible watermelon smoothies before, so when I got the sweetest tasting farm-fresh cantaloupe, I knew I wanted to see what it could do in a smoothie.
I was incredibly pleased with the results!
Ginger, Kale, & Cantaloupe Smoothie
1 large stalk kale
1 cup frozen cantaloupe cubes
1 small frozen banana
1 scoop protein powder (optional)
1 hunk of fresh ginger (I like at least an inch)
3/4 c almond milk (or coconut water would probably be delicious as well)
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend. Add more liquid if desired.
The cantaloupe makes this smoothie soooo creamy. It seriously tastes like a ginger milkshake. Enjoy!
