2 Ingredients Cantaloupe and Strawberry smoothie
I love Cantaloupe or muskmelon if you say. It brings some fond memories of summer and makes me nostalgic. So when the Foodie Monday bloghop theme was announced for this week as summer fruits, immediately decided to use the cantaloupe which I bought during weekend. Strawberries are available here as a summer fruit and hence I decided to make this 2 ingredients Cantaloupe and Strawberry smoothie
Cantaloupe contains 90 perc water and hence keep you hydrated and is a good food to enjoy during scorching summers. Loaded with Vit C, fiber and a lot of essential vitamins and minerals. Strawberries are a rich source of antioxidants and is a good food for weight loss. So all in all this Cantaloupe and Strawberry smoothie bowl is one complete healthy meal.
Many different ideas crossed my mind, but I decided to go with this easy and quick 2 ingredients Cantaloupe and Strawberry smoothie. I have used chia and flax seeds for garnish and also to increase it’s nutrient content. You can use it or skip it completely.
Secondly I have not used any sugar here. The sweetness comes from cantaloupe. My cantaloupe was sweet enough, but you can always add some honey or maple syrup if needed.
Rest the recipe is very very simple, just add the cantaloupe and the strawberries in a blender and blend. One can play around with this recipe. Add mint for that extra kick or nuts to get some crunch. If you want the smoothie to be more thick, you can add a bit of banana to give it some structure. I enjoyed it as is and was full after having this smoothie bowl.
