Have you ever made something or done something and immediately thought to yourself “Why in the world don’t people do this all the time?” I had one of those moments last night when I decided to throw some cantaloupe and ice in my blender. Who knew that cantaloupe could lead me to such an epiphany, but it did. I know many of you, especially those of you on the East coast, are dying in the heat right now, and nothing would feel better than a cold, icy drink. Well let me help you out a little bit. Instead of going to 7/11 or your local convenience store and buying a sugar and preservative-filled slurpee that will make you feel terrible 10 minutes after drinking it, may I suggest this insanely simple recipe to you.
- Take out your blender
- Put half a chopped up cantaloupe in there, skin off of course.
- Throw in 5-6 ice cubes.
- Blend until smooth.
- Enjoy the cool, nutrient-rich deliciousness of a cantaloupe slushee.
