Just a little tidbit that you might wanna know or tell people, if you have a strong enough blender like a vitamix or blendtec you can put water and the seeds from the cantaloupe inside and it makes a pretty sweet drink that is healthy for you! Most people throw away the inside but all of it can be used in a delicious drink by itself or in a smoothie. The only thing is that you need to strain the juice/milk to make sure there is no wandering chunks of seeds flowing around.
Thanks for sharing, Monica!
Do you guys use a juicer for these recipes? Or is a normal blender sufficient for most of them?

I’m an absolute fan of this recipe. I love the mint flavor and the lime. It gives a refreshing taste. I left out the apple though cause I didn’t have it and use honey dew instead of melon. It’s delicious!
What would be a good substitute for apple? Will it ruin the smoothie if I just leave it out?
Sub in mango, pineapple, banana, cherries.
Just now made this one – it’s purple and DEEEELISH!!! Yum!!
Glad you liked it! CHEERS!
This smoothie has an interesting combination of ingredients that I never would have thought of putting together, and to be honest its actually quite good. I also added honeydew instead of cantaloupe like another reviewer had said; my melon wasnt all that ripe so I added half a cup of water to get it to blend. I do believe I like this smoothie, the flavors are very nice together! I also like how you guys write a little informative paragraph or so about what ingredients do what for you, very helpful, thank you in so many ways

I have wanted to get more vegetables and fruit into my diet. When a friend encouraged me to join the 30 Day Green Smoothie Challenge, I thought here is my way to accomplish my goal. I am so glad I took the challenge. The smoothies are tastie! I feel lighter; better two weeks in. There is a great side affect from drinking the smoothies. I have started to loose weight. I understand that this is not a diet, but I love having the benefit of weight loss!
Wonderful to hear your success with green smoothies, Diane! Keep blending those leafy greens!
I didn’t have cantaloupe this morning, so I substituted with honeydew – it was delicious!
I had everything but the lime Tastes good though!
When I blend this, how long before I have to drink it? Wondering if I can make the night before to take to work the next day.
You can keep it up to two days in the fridge as long as it’s in a sealed container (like a jar)!
