This healthy smoothie recipe is the perfect way to cool off in the summer when cantaloupe is at its peak, adding plenty of sweetness to this healthy snack.
Active Time: 10 minutes |
Total Time: 10 minutes (plus overnight to freeze banana)
2 cups chopped ripe cantaloupe
1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk
1 1/2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place unpeeled banana in the freezer overnight (or for up to 3 months).
Remove the banana from the freezer and let it sit until the skin begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Remove the skin with a paring knife. (Don't worry if a little fiber remains.) Cut the banana into chunks. Add to a blender or food processor along with cantaloupe, yogurt, dry milk, orange juice, honey and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
