1/2 Cantaloupe + 1/2 Watermelon = Melon Breeze
I had been looking through a mini recipe book that came with my Ninja blender( I love my blender! I high recommend this one.) and I stumbled upon this recipe.Since my mother had given me a cantaloupe and I had no intention to cutting it up anytime soon , this was my chance to put it to good use.
* You may add Stevia If your fruit isn’t sweet enough. Mine was!
My lovely sister made me a surprise visit so we decided to combined like terms and made a yummy refreshing fruit drink and a meal. Our weekly get togethers consist of either cooking or trying to do her insanity workout videos with a lot of laughing in between of course . The best part of having a sister is that you could make fun of each other and and if you do happen to get mad your over it within 5 minutes.
Amazing Health Benefits Of Cantaloupe:
Its an excellent source of vitamin A on account of its concentrated beta-carotene content. Once inside the body, beta-carotene can be converted into vitamin A, so when you eat cantaloupe it’s like getting both these beneficial nutrients at once. One cup of cantaloupe is just 56 calories, but provides 108% of the daily value for vitamin A. Both vitamin A and beta-carotene are important vision nutrients. In a study of over 50,000 women nurses aged 45 to 67, women who consumed the highest dietary amount of vitamin A had a 39% reduced risk of developing cataracts. In another study that looked at the incidence of cataract surgery and diet, researchers found that those people who ate diets that included cantaloupe had half the risk of cataract surgery, while those who ate the highest amounts of butter, salt and total fat had higher risks for cataract surgery. Beta-carotene has also been the subject of extensive research in relationship to cancer prevention and prevention of oxygen-based damage to cells.
