This refreshing smoothie packs a nutrient punch by combining leafy greens and herbs with cantaloupe, cucumber and almondmilk. We suggest sweetening it with a little honey, but you could also blend three or four pitted dried dates into the smoothie instead.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and seeded
  • 2 cups cantaloupe chunks (from about 1/4 large cantaloupe)
  • 1 cup finely chopped kale or baby spinach leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 3/4 cup plain unsweetened almondmilk
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
Method: 
In a blender, combine cucumber, cantaloupe, kale, basil, mint, almondmilk, honey and almond extract. Blend until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses and serve.
