It's 2014. Gone are the days of cantaloupes stuffed with cottage cheese as the dieter's breakfast staple. It's the age of juices and smoothies, so it's time to revamp this nutrient-dense, powerful melon into a more sophisticated drink that can be enjoyed any time of day.

Cantaloupes have a safe diuretic effect, which makes this smoothie perfect for that time of month, or whenever you're feeling a little bloated. They also act as a mild laxative, so this is a delicious and natural option if you need to get things moving.
