Pomegranate Cafe’s Melon Berry Crush Smoothie….I call it A Spirit Smoothie

What You Need:

1 1/2 cups chopped watermelon

1/4 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded & chopped

1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries

1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

fresh squeezed orange juice

organic whip cream

fresh blueberries & strawberries for garnish

What You Do:

1.  In a blender, combine all the fruits with the orange juice to cover.

Me squeezing the juice fresh from the orange, but I did it backwards! I was supposed to cover the fruit with the OJ! I realized that after the fact. The good news is that the smoothie still came out great 🙂

2.  Blend until smooth.

3.  Top with whipped cream and fresh berries for garnish.  Serve immediately.

The organic whipped cream and blueberries give this yummy smoothie a festive 4th of July layered look.

The smoothie also looks great in a fun glass!

Not only does this smoothie look festive and fun, but it tastes great and is super healthy for you.  Pomegranate Cafe’s Cassie Tolman tells me that the strawberries are calming, the berries are high in anti-oxidents and the watermelon is hydrating.  Good stuff!
