Sweet-Salty Cantaloupe Smoothie
I combine another not-so-used summer fruit into this smoothie, Apricot. Why apricot! First of all its bright yellow color makes me happy. (I am serious it’s a real reason). Apricot is not a super sweet fruit and it has dense flesh than cantaloupe which brings to this smoothie more fullness.
Iknow cantaloupe is not a favorite melon of so many people and I was one of them. I may admit that I am not a fond of many fruits. But when I got hypo-thyroids I started looking for more variety of fruits to add on my daily menu especially on my smoothies. I was a huge drinker of green smoothie and I love green salads which is not so friendly for my hypo-thyroids. So I started try out more fruit combination for my smoothie. This way I come up with this sweet-salty cantaloupe smoothie and I can guarantee you this smoothie will change your thought about cantaloupe.
