Coco-Cantaloupe Smoothie

I found myself craving a cantaloupe a few weeks ago at the grocery store, but then didn’t feel like eating it plain. When I was a kid, my grandma used to put a scoop of ice cream on it, but I don’t do dairy anymore, so I came up with this instead. It was quite tasty. You could substitute coconut water for the maple water if you like–I’ve used both, and they’re both very pretty good.


  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1/3 cup aloe juice
  • 1 cup raw cantaloupe
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • a few sprigs of fresh mint
  • ice (optional)

Blend together in a Vitamix or other blender and enjoy! The amount of ice you use will help determine your desired level of thickness.
