Jamie says: I had a fun time visiting two good friends in St. Pete this weekend. After the ride home followed by some shopping and church, I needed something quick to eat while I was making my picnic lunch to eat with K. I decided on a smoothie using the fruit I had in the fridge. It was light and refreshing- just what I was looking for. Just for kicks, I drank it with a straw.
In my little blender (Bella Cucina Rocket Blender), I blended cantaloupe, mango, vanilla extract, ice cubes, and skim milk.
