Breakfast to go! Smoothies filled with fresh fruit are so easy to blend up, and a healthy way to start your morning! In an older blog post, I mention three different ways I mix my smoothies; dairy-free, with yogurt or protein powder. I alter the combination just to vary the routine. I use a mix of fruits; strawberries, blueberries, blackberries in different combinations, and often with bananas and spinach, but I saw a cantaloupe and pineapple smoothie duo on Roti n Rice‘s site and I couldn’t wait to try it! I got to the blender quicker after my local radio station woke me up to Hawaiian themed music! I made it with a scoop of vanilla protein powder, adding about 20 grams of protein to the mix. It’s a refreshing beverage!
I like the thicker consistency that frozen fruit adds to smoothies, so I often combine fresh and freshly frozen (prepared by me, not purchased from the freezer section) fruit in my smoothies. You can also thicken it up with a couple of cubes of ice if you are using all fresh fruit.
- 1 cup fresh cantaloupe, cut in chunks
- 1 cup fresh pineapple, cut in chunks
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 serving (scoop) of protein powder (vanilla)
Mix all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth.

Pineapple and cantaloupe are filled with vitamin C, so get your daily allowance from this smoothie!
