Cantaloupe Kefir Smoothie

 

Summer is the best time to be making fruit smoothies, especially the berry varieties. But when you’ve got cantaloupes coming in from the garden or market and simply can’t eat enough of them, it is time to look past the berries and throw the cantaloupe into the blender.

This smoothie is icy cold and refreshing for the hottest of days. The cultured milk kefir packs a nutritional punch, and the pinch of salt really brings out the flavor of the cantaloupe.


Ingredients:

  • 4 cups kefir (goat works as well as cow)
  • 3 to 4 cups ice
  • 1 small canteloupe, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • Pinch of sea salt

Instructions:

  1. To a large (at least 8-cup) blender add the kefir followed by the ice followed by the chopped cantaloupe. Squeeze in the honey and add the pinch of salt. Blend for 20 to 30 seconds until all is combined and smooth.
  2. Taste and add more sweetener if desired. Serve on a hot summer day.
