Cantaloupe Melon Smoothie

Smoothies, this drink  can be prepared in a jiffy, this thick fruity drink suits absolutely prefect even to kick start a day. I love these drinks especially for their simplicity, a breakfast smoothie can be prepared with cereals, fruit and dairy products easily. For me a breakfast smoothie is quite enough to have a filling breakfast. However smoothies can be taken during anytime of the day.Many types of fruit smoothies are found in Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine, including sharbat, which is typically made of yogurt and honey. In India, the traditional Mango Shake is really a summer smoothie in which mango, crushed water ice, milk and cane sugar are mixed into a thick smoothie using a blender, while in South India, pineapple smoothies with crushed ice and sugar (without milk) are more popular. Smoothies can also be mixed with soft drinks and or alcohol to make cocktails. Needless to say smoothies can be prepared with fruits along with dairy products or else simpy with fruits, water and sugar.


For my today's post, am posting this delicious, thick cantaloupe smoothie as am running my third week of blogging marathon with Sizzling smoothies. Since summer is here, its peak season of summer fruits here. Cantaloupe, this summer fruit is very much everywhere in fruit stalls here. I couldnt resist to make a delicious smoothie with fruit and hence am posting this cantaloupe yogurt smoothie. As usual smoothies are very easy to prepare, just put everything in a blender blend it and serve immediately.This easy breezy smoothie tastes super fabulous, definitely refreshing and sugarless as i used maple syrup instead of sugar.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#43.

1/2cup Chilled water
Maple syrup (as per need)

Take the cantaloupe melon pieces,chilled water in a blender, blend everything well.

Add in the yogurt, maple syrup and blend again well until it turns thick.
