What Did the Cantaloupe Say to the Watermelon?

Watermelon: Let’s run away and get married!
Cantaloupe: I’m sorry, but I cantaloupe.

Haha, get it? 😉
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Sipping Smooth Smoothies

I love recipe swaps. The recipes are absolutely delicious and extremely easy to follow! It has been so fun cooking up a storm in the kitchen and learning different ways to cook the same thing. On Monday, I made my friend’s kick-butt green bean stir fry.

Today, I made her avocado banana smoothie. I’m not really a smoothie person, but I love this smoothie!

It’s healthy – sweetened with banana and stevia.
It’s easy – can be prepared in under five minutes, and it only requires four ingredients!
It’s delicious – try it if you don’t believe me! Ingredients:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup almond milk (depending on how thick you like your smoothies)
  • 2 scoops/packtets stevia

Blend away!

Easiest, healthiest, yummiest smoothie ever. Yum.

What is your favourite smoothie?

Oops, I Did It Again

I… uhm… ate… uhm… Spongebob’s house.

It looked absolutely delicious, and I couldn’t resist any longer. I took out a knife and demolished.

Here’s the final result:Sorry Spongebob. I couldn’t help myself.

Did you watch Spongebob as a kid?

Water You Waiting For?

Water you waiting for?

Dig into some refreshing watermelon wedges now!

Not only is watermelon an excellent thirst-quencher, it is also low in calories and bursting with nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, lycopene, magnesium, and potassium, just to name a few!

If you still aren’t convinced, watermelon contains citrulline, an amino acid that benefits our circulatory and immune systems through dilation of blood vessels and removal of harmful toxins like ammonia.

Most importantly, watermelon is delicious and extremely versatile. You can make watermelon salsa, smoothies, salads, cocktails, parfaits, sandwiches, popsicles… the possibilities are endless! If you are ever in need of some ideas, check out the National Watermelon Promotion Board.
