Cantaloupe Smoothie

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/cantaloupe_smoothie.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 1993, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

The fresh combination of banana, cantaloupe and low-fat dairy in this smoothie packs a powerful punch of potassium, calcium, vitamin C and beta carotene.

1 serving | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 10 minutes (plus overnight to freeze banana)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place unpeeled banana in the freezer overnight (or for up to 3 months). Remove 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; combine in a blender or food processor with cantaloupe, yogurt, dry milk, orange juice, honey and vanilla. Cover and blend until smooth.
