It seems like I waited half my life for cantaloupes to come into season this year. They’re so ripe, juicy + sweet right now, that you don’t even have to search for “the perfect one.” Just grab + go, and dig in with a spoon.
Cantaloupe is another fruit that Chris doesn’t like. Your loss ma’ man. Seriously, I have to stop myself from eating ENTIRE cantaloupes in one sitting. I try to stick to 1/4 or 1/2, but it’s hard. These little cubes just melt in my mouth, and I can’t get enough.
One thing I’ve never done with cantaloupe is add it to a smoothie. While they’re in season and on sale, I figured, why not give it a shot.
Cantaloupe Smoothie [serves 1]
- 2c cubed cantaloupe [freeze for thicker texture]

Creamy, cantaloupey, summery, delicious.
