⭐ Why you'll love this summer smoothie
Fresh and light. This almost feels like dessert rather than a smoothie, and is particularly good with lots of ice for a refreshing cool drink.
Healthy. The combination of fruit and chia means you will be getting lots of goodness!
Easy to make. Such a simple recipe, and one that takes very little time.
This melon and peach smoothie only requires a few ingredients. You will need:
- Cantaloupe melon - the fresh and juicy fruit of summer.
- Peaches - make sure to use ripe peaches for better flavour and texture to the smoothie.
- Chia - a sprinkle of milled chia gives you even more goodness for the smoothie.
- Coconut milk - the pouring type from a carton rather than a can. Or use another non-dairy milk.
- Maple syrup - for a touch of extra sweetness.
- Almond butter - helps to thicken the smoothie, but is optional.
📖 Variations to the recipe
You can easily use another nut or seed butter if almond butter isn't a good option for you.
Any non-dairy milk is good, your choice will slightly change the taste of the smoothie.

💭 Recipe tips
- Put the liquid ingredients in the Nutribullet cup or blender first! If you put the dry ingredients in first they can often stick to the top of the cup and won't blend as easily.
- Blend up the smoothie with only one cube of ice first, have a taste and then add more and blend to preference. I used to add a ton of ice first and end up with a smoothie that was too watered down. Add gradually, and keep tasting along the way for the perfect smoothie flavour!
- To make the smoothie thicker add more ice, oats or frozen fruit. To make it thinner, add a bit more of the milk.

- I use cantaloupe melon, but others such as honeydew would also be refreshing for summer!
- It can be helpful to pour the milk in first to help prevent sticking of the other ingredients to the blender.

Making this today! Had cantalope cut up already (but it wasn't all that sweet ). This will be perfect.
Hope you like it! That's a shame the melon wasn't too sweet. You could add a touch of maple syrup if you want a bit more sweetness for the smoothie.
