It’s lovely and warm today, and what better way to enjoy the sunshine and soak up some vitamin D than drinking a healthy, vitamin-filled, creamy cantaloupe smoothie on a patio or on the beach!
Registered holistic nutritionist Krista A. Parr has the perfect cantaloupe smoothie recipe to end your warm, summer week.
Creamy Cantaloupe Smoothie
Smoothies are a great way to get high fibre and nutrients in an easily digestible form. They’re also quick, easy, convenient on the go, and can sustain you for a long time when there is adequate protein and quality fats included. This delicious smoothie achieves all of the above, plus a host of fertility nutrients including essential fatty acids, calcium, folate, and vitamins E, C, and B6. So, all in one smoothie you have the potential to regulate hormones, protect sperm and eggs from oxidative damage, increase cervical fluid, remove toxins and excess hormones from the body, and increase blood flow to the reproductive organs! Plus, all of the ingredients in this smoothie have an alkaline effect on body chemistry, offsetting the acidity of stress, medications, pollution, caffeine, alcohol, and sugar, and creating a welcoming environment for sperm.
