Fruit Smoothie - Cantaloupe Carrot Orange Banana
A healthful all fruit, non-dairy "milkshake" substitute
(makes about four 12-oz. glasses)

1/2 lb. Carrots
2 Bananas, medium
1 Orange
2 tbsp. Flaxseed, whole
1-1/2 cups Ice

We prepare our fruit smoothies in our Vita-Mix, but they can be prepared in any blender on high speed.  If your blender container is small, or if you are preparing the fruit smoothie for one person, cut the recipe in half.

Begin by thoroughly washing the fruit and the carrots. 

Cut the cantaloupe in half and then into wedges.  If you're using a Vita-Mix or other high-powered blender, the seeds may be included in the fruit smoothie; otherwise, remove them. Cut off and discard the rind from each wedge and place the cantaloupe in the blender container.

Add the peeled bananas to the blender container.  Peel the carrots, cut into pieces, and add to the blender container.  Peel the orange, remove any seeds, and add the orange to the blender container. 

Add the flaxseeds and ice, cover the container and run at high speed until the smoothie is thoroughly blended.  Serve immediately.


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!  (d-22)
