Healthy Recipe: Cantaloupe-Strawberry Smoothie

Try this nutrient-packed drink for a healthy sweet treat any time of day.

We’re back this week with another delicious smoothie recipe, courtesy of local registered dietitian Carlene Thomas of Healthfully Ever After. Her recipe for a cantaloupe concoction with strawberries, spinach, and chia seeds makes for a refreshing spring treat.

Cantaloupe is an excellent source of vitamins C and A, and you’ll get double the dose with the strawberries. Spinach adds a boost of phytonutrients that function as anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer agents. And just one tablespoon of chia seeds packs in healthy fats, protein, and fiber.
