Refreshing Cantaloupe Smoothie (and oh by the way…)
Did you all have a nice Easter weekend? I took some time off online the last couple of weeks, enjoying Spring Break with my fam. Hard to believe we are heading into the last 9 weeks of our school year here, I feel like the time after Spring Break always zips by and next thing you know it’ll summer.
But let’s not move too far ahead yet. Is it finally safe to say Spring has Sprung yet?? If it hasn’t yet by you, please, make yourself this smoothie, close your eyes and picture yourself somewhere warm and sunny. I promise, it will work. The weather seems to be cruel this year in parts of the country, I truly feel bad for anyone still dealing with low temps and even (I really can’t believe it) snow. It’s just not fair.
I’ve been in a major smoothie making mood lately. I love this time of year when it seems like our grocery produce section is bursting with so much color. I’m truly happy to see it, especially all the melons and berries. My favorite kind of smoothies are simple, a combination of fresh (and sometimes frozen) fruit, a splash of juice or water, and a handful of ice. I have learned that the order you put your ingredients into your blender really help how your smoothie blends – start with your liquid, then your softest or juciest fruits, then add the rest of your fruit and ice. You basically want to have a good base of liquid working in your blender base so that all your ingredients have a chance to incorporate without burning out your blender. I put all the ingredients in at the same time, just in layers following that order.
Hope you enjoy this bright and refreshing smoothie today!
And oh…by the way. I’ve got some happy and exciting news to share. It’s been hard keeping it a secret, and I’m finally ready to let you know that this upcoming September there will be a new little addition to the Aggie’s Kitchen family. Yep! You heard right….our little family is growing and we are thrilled. 🙂
I’m officially out of the first trimester cave I’ve been living in. I was hit pretty hard by the typical first tri stuff and am so happy to be finally feeling like my old self again this week! Food is my friend once again.
Especially smoothies just like this cantaloupe smoothie 🙂
Yield: 1 smoothie
- 1 clementine or small orange, cut into segments or chunks
- 1/4 cantaloupe, cut into chunks
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 6 ice cubes
- Place fruit in blender starting with your softest and juiciest pieces. Top with ice cubes. Blend and enjoy!

So happy for you and your family! The first trimester is the pits because you feel awful and you have to keep quiet about it.

Congrats! What wonderful news!
Thank you Kirsten!
I’m coming to this a little late but had to let you know how happy I am for you! I will enjoy following along and look forward to welcoming your sweet new bundle of joy 🙂 Congratulations Aggie!!!
Thank you for all the well wishes Valerie!! 🙂
Congratulations Aggie!!!!!! Such amazing news! The first trimester (seasickness all day & huge aversion to food) for me with #3 lasted for about 6 months. It’s really hard to function that way. I’m so glad you’re feeling better!! I’m so thrilled for you. 😉
I’ve had it with the others, but this time was a little different. It’s harder when you have to constantly be somewhere with the kids lol and try to look/feel normal – though it does make the time go by quicker. Your #2 and #3 are spaced out a bit too aren’t they? Mine will be 6 an 9 years apart from baby! So different and I can’t wait to experience it!
Aggie, I am thrilled to bits for you! Hugs and here’s to a healthy and happy rest of pregnancy!! Xox
Thank you so much Mardi!! Hope you are doing well! Will miss seeing you at FBF this year!
Oh my goodness, congratulations 🙂 so very excited for your newest bundle! The smoothie looks delightful.
Thank you so much! xoxo
Baby Baby Baby! Congrats again!
Yay!! Thank you friend 🙂
OH MY GOODNESS!! I’m so excited for you!!!! WAHOOO!!!
Thank you Carrian!! xo
You are rotten for keeping this news from me, however, I am so happy for you!! SOOOOO excited! Yay!!!!!
I know!! It was hard! I look up to you as a mama – will need your guidance friend, lol. XOXO
This is a different fruit to use in a smoothie. Thanks for the ideas.
NO WAY! I am so HAPPY for you! I was wondering where you had been. 🙂 I hated blogging or even thinking about food with my third pregnancy so glad to hear you are getting over that stage. Your older two are going to be such big helpers! XOXO
I was so not into anything blogging or food related the past two months! I’m glad to be moving forward 🙂 My kids are over the moon – they really are going to be great helpers! Thanks you! xo
Big congratulations!!!!! <3
Yaaaaaaaay, Aggiiieeeee!!!! xoxoxo!
Thank you Bev!! xoxo
CONGRATS Aggie!!!! SO exciting!!
