Banana Cantaloupe Cashew nut Smoothie

My Favourite Smoothies

Banana Cantaloupe Cashew nut Smoothie myfavouritepastime.com_6156Summer just began a few weeks ago and so far it has been wonderful with great temperatures, not too hot and not too cold. I love it!!!!

This summer I plan to make fifty different smoothies so watch this space. I shall keep on posting as I make and keep on drinking of course…..

Please note that bananas tend to oxidize and turn brown when exposed to air. It’s always important to add a citric juice like orange when making smoothies with bananas. The other alternative is to add 2-3 tablespoons lemon or lime juice. I found this smoothie really sweet, my daughter didn’t so I guess it’s not really sweet. I have reduced my sugar intake over the years so my palate is not used to SWEET

Banana Cantaloupe Cashew nut Smoothie

Preparation time: 5 minutes Serves: 4 x 250ml cups


  • 1 cup fully-packed, diced cantaloupe
  • 3 bananas, sliced (I used Dole)
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 30 pieces (1/3 cup) raw cashew nuts (or almonds)


  1. Combine everything and blend till smooth. Serve.
  2. If you want the smoothiet extra thick, add only 11/2 cups orange juice.

Point to Note

I always refrain from adding sugar to smoothies. If you want it sweeter, add whatever sweetener you prefer.
