Spinach & Cantaloupe Smoothie

DSC_9938

In continuing with my Smoothie week, I made one a couple weeks back that though not exactly picture worthy, the flavor and nutritional value were high.

Again the luck of not getting the best cantaloupe struck again.  The first day it was delicious, but as much as I enjoy cantaloupe this family of three cannot eat an entire melon in 24-36 hours.  Unfortunately the ripeness of this melon was great at first taste and when I decided to slice it and store it, but as it sat for two days it started to become more ripe and mushy.  As much as I enjoy melon I am a bit particular as to they need to have some texture to them if I am going to simply eat and enjoy.

I had my taste buds set on making a green smoothie that morning as I had some fresh baby spinach and I had not had one in awhile.  So as I do so often I simply started adding ingredients to my Vitamix container.
