This recipe is best prepared in a high-powered blender such as a Vita-Mix and it will make approximately four 12-oz. servings. With a Vita-Mix, even the cantaloupe seeds can be ground up for added nutrition. If a smaller blender is used, or you wish to make less, we suggest that the recipe be cut in half for each batch.
It is also best to refrigerate the fruit several hours before preparing the Fruit Smoothie. To make the Smoothie even colder, the Banana could be peeled, cut into pieces and frozen.
Thoroughly wash the Cantaloupe. Cut into sections. Remove the rind, and seeds (if using a low powered blender). Place the cantaloupe pieces into the blender.
Add the peeled Banana, flaxseed, and the ice. Cover the blender and run at "high" until thoroughly blended into the Smoothie (about 1-2 minute).
Serve in a tall glass with a straw, and enjoy. A Fruit Smoothie also makes a great breakfast.
