Chocolate, Cantaloupe and Cranberry Smoothie
So I'm all for mixing up ingredients I find on hand to create some fun concoction. Today: a smoothie.
Maybe it was inspired by some chocolate me and my friend found last night while walking down the candy aisle in London drugs. It was apricot, chocolate and cashews. My friend thought it was the weirdest combination ever because there seemed to be too much going on there.
I didn't think that to be a weird combination at all. Actually, I thought it sounded pretty tasty!
So I planned to top it. I think that this is such a strange combination, but I've got to say.. I actually liked it.
Okay, maybe that's not saying much. The other day, I went to White Spot and ordered a blueberry milkshake. Sounds really good, right? Well, it tasted like onions. But, since I spent like $4 on this drink, I was determined to drink it all. And halfway through, I got used to it, and actually started liking it! It started tasting more like blueberries as the glass emptied. Come to think of it, it seemed like that gum in Willy Wonka. A meal in a glass. At least I didn't inflate like a balloon.
What you'll need:
-1/3 cup frozen cranberries
-1 cup fresh cantaloupe
-2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
-1/2 cup yogurt
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender, and puree until smooth
