Cantaloupes are in season and this is now my clients new favorite to start the day.(Digests best first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.) According to www.whfoods.com, cantaloupe is a superstar in vitamin C & A along with being high in a number of other beneficial nutrients.By including the seeds (in a form that is easily bioavailable) it bumps up the nutrient density.
1 cup filtered water
4 ice cubes
Scoop seeds of the cantaloupe into a super blender (Vita Mix or Blend Tech) add 1-cup water and blend on high until seeds are completely liquefied.
Carefully remove the outer crinkly cantaloupe skin (OK to leave some of the green on) cut into large chunks and throw into the blender with ice cubes.
Blend just enough to make it smooth and the ice disappears.
Serve right away to maintain all the vitamins.
