Back on track: Cantaloupe and Lime Smoothie

Back on track smoothie

After a fabulous but busy weekend of catching up with friends and eating out, this is my ‘back on track’ go-to smoothie. I often have this smoothie on a Monday morning, it gets my energy levels ups for the week ahead.

Cantaloupe (or rock melon as we call it in Australia) is full of fiber, potassium and vitamin C, all great for supporting heart health. With the high water content in all summer melons, it assists in keeping your body well hydrated – great if you have over indulged on the weekend.

The lime juice is alkalising and great for reducing inflammation, assisting with digestion and for maintaining glowing skin and hair.

While the cashew nuts give it a lovely creamy texture and provide protein to fill you until your next meal. The spinach leaves give a hit of iron and calcium, both of which are essential for bone health and increasing your energy levels.
