This cantaloupe smoothie makes a great summer fruit smoothie recipe when cantaloupe is in season. Freezing the cantaloupe before you make this fruit smoothie recipe makes it icy, like a milkshake.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cantaloupe chunks (about 1-inch pieces)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon honey

Steps to Make It

  1. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

  2. Place cantaloupe chunks on the baking sheet, leaving space between each piece of cantaloupe.

  3. Freeze 1 hour. Transfer to a plastic bag, and freeze at least 1 more hour.

  4. These cantaloupe chunks will keep in the freezer for several months, provided you store them in an airtight, freezer-safe container.​

  5. Place cantaloupe chunks in the bottom of a Vita Mix Blender, regular blender or food processor.

  6. Top with remaining ingredients. Puree until smooth.
