Cleansing Cantaloupe & Mint Smoothie

Written by Jennifer Sweenie

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.
