Cantaloupe and raspberries are blended with yogurt. This is great when cantaloupe is in season. Try it with strawberries in place of the raspberries!

Excellent flavor! I really like this combination but I couldn't get it to blend without milk (or liquid of some sort). I added 1/4 cup milk PER serving and it was SOOOOOO good! Now if someone can tell me how to get the seeds out it would be a hit with my kids! Maybe next time I will try blending the raspberries first with the milk and then putting them through a strainer. This one is a keeper - I found cantaloupe out of season; just chop into smaller pieces and blend longer. Read More

This was a good smoothie with a unique taste! Cantaloupe was on sale so I gave it a try... I used strawberries instead of raspberries and vanilla yogurt vs. plain. Like others I had to add a bit of half and half to get it to blend. Read More

Absolutely delicious! I doubled the recipe but I didn't have any raspberries (or any other berries) so I just used the cantaloupe yogurt and sugar and then added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. My daughter and I both loved it. Read More

Really good! The kids all loved it and asked for more. Had frozen raspberries so it made it thick and creamy. Read More

I think this is only as good as your cantaloupe is juicy and sweet - mine wasn't all that great. To compensate I tossed in more raspberries (frozen) than called for and used peach rather than plain yogurt. Left out the sugar at Hubs' request and he was happy with the result. On the positive side of using not so juicy and sweet cantaloupe however I didn't experience the smoothie being watery as others reported. In fact I had to add a little half-and-half to get the blender going. I'm not a big smoothie fan; I make these particularly for Hubs but I found this lighter more refreshing than others most likely due to the mildness of the cantaloupe. Given my cantaloupe's rather bland condition this was a great way to use it to its best advantage. Read More

I loved this! I ended up using frozen raspberries and vanilla yogurt because that's what I had so I didn't add the sugar. Plenty sweet without it. I also had to add a shot of orange juice to get things going in the blender - it was very thick and added an orange umbrella to make myself feel special. Excellent. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I love cantaloupe in smoothies but I always use frozen fruit. I subbed strawberries for the raspberries and vanilla yogurt for the plain. I left out the sugar. Since my fruit was frozen I had to add some skim milk to get it mixed. I like my smoothies the consistency of thick milkshakes. The cantaloupe adds a lightness that I love especially starting with a good sweet cantaloupe. Read More

I was worried about the cantaloupe being a little too sweet so I made the recipe without the sugar then taste-tasted it. The cantaloupe I used was sweet enough so I didn't need the additional sugar. This doubled well for four servings but it wasn't near enough for four people. The combination of the cantaloupe and raspberries was wonderful. I agree with Scotdog that it could use a little vanilla flavoring or vanilla yogurt like she used. Next time I'd like to try to make these into frozen yogurt pops--I think that would be heaven.
