Muskmelon/Cantaloupe smoothie


Muskmelons are refered to as kirnipalam in Tamil.. my mom used to make juices during our summers and we used to enjoy them thoroughly.. Yesterday i saw these melons in the market and i felt home sick ! got the melons and made a juice and relished it with those lovely times spent with bro and friends drinking juices !
my mom used to make this juice with milk but i have substituted with soy milk


Cantaloupe are a source of polyphenol antioxidants, chemicals which are known to provide certain health benefits to the cardiovascular system and immune system. These chemicals are known to up regulate the formation of nitric oxide, a key chemical in promoting health of the endothelium and prevention of heart attacks. (image courtesy,source :wikipedia)

Cantaloupes also are an excellent source of vitamin C and beta carotene.



Ingredients

Muskmelon - 1
Sugar/honey - 2 tbspn (acc to taste)
Soy milk - 1 1/2 cups
Method

  • Cut the melon and scoop the pulp without the seeds
  • and add the pulp,milk and sugar and blend them well
