Free Radical Fighting Super Smoothie

By: Jen Hansard | last Updated: 10.26.2015 | COMMENTS: 15


Free Radical Fighter-3

Try this Free Radical Fighting Super Smoothie once you’ve moved beyond the beginning stages of green smoothies. Cantaloupes are a rich source of vitamin A (as beta-carotene) and vitamin C, which are important immunity and antioxidant vitamins. They also contain good levels of B vitamins and vitamin K. Blueberries rank the highest for antioxidants when it comes to fruit. And these tiny berries are full of vitamin C and fiber. Mint helps soothe your stomach and stimulates digestion of fats. Let’s blend breakfast together!

    I can’t wait to try this smoothie; I’ve never tried this mix of ingredients together, and I’m intrigued!

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      The mint and lime take it to the next level. 🙂 Def give it a try and let us know what you think!

  2. Nancy Sinclair says:

    Do we delete the seeds in cantaloupe for the smoothie? It says delete rind. We don’t normally eat them.

  3. Jane says:

    Do you have any options for someone on a kidney stone diet? We have to avoid soinach, beets, anything in the cabbage family.

    • Jane says:

      That would be spinach!

      • SGS Rawkstar says:

        Hi Jane!

        Thanks for reaching out! Since we are not medical professionals, I would recommend speaking with your doctor to determine which fruits + veggies would be best for you :). Everybody is so different!

  6. Theresa says:

    I would love to try this when melons are in when season. In the meantime, is there a substitute to recommend?

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Theresa,

      Of course! Some great substitutes when cantaloupe is out of season are peaches + papaya! Also, feel free to try this recipe with any other type of melon!

  7. Kathy says:

    So, I hate cantaloupe.. But I LOVE this smoothie! When I first saw the recipe picture I dismissed it because of the melon, but decided to try something new and am glad I did! Slightly creamy, not too sweet, and the mint and lime make it so refreshing! Thanks for getting me to re-think my faves and try something I thought for sure wouldn’t work for me!
