Cool Cantaloupe Smoothie Bowl

Cool Cantaloupe Smoothie Bowl

We all know melons and summertime go hand in hand, but Shah Mofid (Dad) took it to another level this year. He insisted I take home a cantaloupe the size of the Death Star and my first thought, actually my second thought was that I gotta either freeze it, or make some lemonade (My first thought was “How many GMO’s went in to make this guy?”). Soooo . . . I chopped it up and froze it intending to use it later.

That’s a 2 – gallon bag ^.

Wanting to do something creative with this over-abundance of fruit, I made a melon-y smoothie bowl out of it. It was so much better than I expected it to be, so I couldn’t help but post it!

Oh no! Dad was right!!! My massive cantaloupe came into use!

I threw in some strawberries, banana, almond butter, and almond milk – lovely.

Some ground flaxseeds would go perfectly in here as well.

Top with seriously anything – but I chose to sprinkle on some chia seeds and frozen blueberries. Then of course, drizzle with all the almond butter ya want!
