Cantaloupe Juice | The Most Refreshing Drink Ever

Cantaloupe Juice | The Most Refreshing Drink Ever | Well and Full | #vegan #juice #recipe

Today’s recipe is kind of a cantaloupe juice/smoothie hybrid, but juicy enough to be called a juice. It’s something I’ve been sipping on as the weather gets hotter, and it’s been so insanely refreshing. I don’t know what it is exactly… the juicy cantaloupe, the ice-cold vanilla almond milk, the frozen mango… it’s just such an amazing combination. I could go on about this drink forever, that’s how refreshing it is!! I hope y’all like it as much as I do.

So does anyone have any fun summer plans? I don’t have any big trips lined up, but I’m definitely planning to get outside more. Lake swimming, hiking, river tubing… it’s all on the list. Maybe even some outdoor rock climbing if it’s not too hot. And, of course, I’m planning on going ¡wild! on my recipe development with all the summer produce!! I’m especially looking forward to zucchini, tomatoes, and berries. The possibilities are endless! I’m envisioning a lot of succulent burst tomato pastas, grilled squash bowls, berry crumbles and ice creams and smoothies, and tons of other summery dishes that are just begging to be made. It’s gonna be awesome!!

So here’s what caught my eye on the webs this week:

1 // A Registered Dietician goes over the benefits of a plant-based diet, and its differences from veganism.

2 // If you’re cooking with fresh fruits and vegetables, be sure to tag any of your social media posts with #FreshFoodMatters. For every hashtag, Sub-Zero Appliances will donate $5 to Katie’s Krops, an organization that supports youth-run gardens that donate to local soup kitchens. For more information, check out Jessie’s post here!

3 // I’m going to be getting this vegetable cleaver in the mail soon for a review, and I just can’t wait!! As someone who used to get knives at Target for $4.99, this is a huuuuge step up.

4 // 176,500-year-old rock formations were found in caves near Toulouse, France. This really takes me back to my summer abroad in Toulouse in 2012, where we got to tour prehistoric caves in the nearby town of Niaux, France. Touring the Grottes de Niaux was one of my favorite memories from the trip!

5 // I always love Danielle’s writing on Rooting the Sun, and she always comes up with the most delightfully seasonal recipes. This green garlic gazpacho looks wonderfully delicious.

6 // My GI doctor put me on a bean-free diet, and it’s been seriously hard. Especially when I see recipes like this and this. Beans, I miss you!

7 // Has making granola ever looked so cozy and beautiful?!

8 // And finally, a rescued sun bear enjoying a bubble bath. You’re welcome.

I hope you all have a lovely Memorial Day Weekend!

    We’re both on that melon juice wavelength this week ;) You’ll love that Kyocera knife. I switched to all ceramic knives from that brand a few years ago and haven’t looked back. I only keep one crappy stainless knife around for busting into coconuts and retrieving avocado pits now! Happy weekend xo

    Sarah, thank you for the gazpacho love – It became a quick favorite for me! The combination of almond, grape, and garlic really resonates in a different, yet super delicious way. Most importantly, I’ve been eyeing this cantaloupe juice with the widest eyes – it truly looks like the most refreshing juice in the entire world, and I think I’m going to introduce it to the holiday weekend. xo

    I rarely see juice that is cantaloupe juice but it’s pretty brilliant! I heart melons, and
    I devour every kind of melon there is :P

    I love CANTALOUPE juice. I make the juice of it more often by adding curd to it. Yours is little different. Will try your way of making juice very soon. I loved the addition of mango in it. :)
