Smoothies are a great way to include fruits in your diet! As you may know, I usually recommend adding vegetables to your smoothies to balance out the sweetness of the fruit, and increase your veggie intake. However this smoothie is sweet & simple, using only bananas and cantaloupe.
This time of year, we have greater access to so much fresh fruit, and I feel that it's important to enjoy what's only available locally for such a short period!
If you really want to focus on more local produce, you could swap the banana for berries or peaches, however the taste and texture will be much different.
1 cup unsweetened milk of choice (dairy, almond, coconut) 1/2 banana (fresh or frozen) 1/2 cup cantaloupe (chopped) 1 scoop (1/4 cup) protein powder 1 tsp vanilla extract 3 ice cubes
