Cantaloupe is now in season, so it’s fun to have a new fruit with which to experiment these days. A few weeks ago I created an awful smoothie using cantaloupe that I choked down with the kids and we all hated it, except Joshua who loves almost all smoothies. I ended up making it into popsicles, and I still hated, but at least the girls could eat. I became shy about using cantaloupe through all of this, but I decided I would give it another shot, and I am glad I did. This was a great smoothie combination for us.
The Verdict: Abbie said “I taste the bananas”. JSarr said, “I taste the cantaloupe”. I said “I taste the raspberries”. How funny! We all enjoyed it!
You can substitute raspberries with strawberries, too.
