Thoroughly wash the outside of the cantaloupe, and cut it in half.  If you are using a Vita-Mix, as we do, you can include the seeds in the fruit smoothie; otherwise, discard them.  Cut the half cantaloupe into strips and remove the outer rind. Put the cantaloupe pieces into the blender container.

Wash the apricots, cut in half, remove the pits, and put the apricot halved in the blender container.

Wash the blueberries and add to the blender container, and add the pitted dates and flaxseeds.

Peel the bananas, and add to the blender container along with the ice.  Cover the container and run the blender at high speed until the contents are creamy smooth.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
