Creamy Cantaloupe Smoothie

June 11, 2019

The M in FODMAP stands for “Monosaccharides”, which is referring to fructose in excess of glucose. If you have issues with excess fructose like me, then you probably don’t absorb fructose very easily from your gut and it quickly ferments, leading to painful bloating, cramps etc.

 

This unfortunately rules out a lot of the juiciest, tropical fruits such as mango and watermelon.

 

Heartbreaking, I know!

 

But there are few succulent, juice fruits we can have and on of those is cantaloupe! This recipe is fresh, simple and accentuate the creaminess of the fruit. Enjoy on a hot day! 

 

120g (¾ cup) is a low FODMAP serving of cantaloupe (according to the Monash app June 2019)

 

[Total Time = 5 Minutes]
Serves two.
 
INGREDIENTS
 
240g (1½ cups) cantaloupe, peel & seeds removed
⅔ ripe banana
Fresh mint
400ml (2 cups) of almond milk
2 handfuls of Ice*
2 tsp of maple syrup optional
 
INSTRUCTIONS
 

  1. Prepare the cantaloupe, scooping away the seeds and then scooping the juicy flesh into whatever you are measuring with, e.g. into a measuring cup or a blender on a T’d scale.

  2. In your blender combine the cantaloupe, banana, mint, plant-milk, and ice and blend until smooth.

  3. Taste and add maple syrup if desired. 

 

*  If your blender isn’t up to ice, just use fridge chilled water and fruit.
