What makes this recipe delicious?

Cantaloupes are naturally rich, creamy, and sweet. Pairing it with coconut milk adds the perfect boost of richness, but is also cut by the tartness of the pineapples. Adding a pinch of salt helps balance the flavor altogether to get a deliciously indulgent smoothie.

What makes this recipe zero waste?

Cantaloupe rinds are inedible (unfortunately), however, cantaloupe seeds are not! You can toast them up like pumpkin seeds as a snack or even plant them in your garden to grow more!

Food storage tip: Cut the cantaloupe and store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days. Or store the whole fruit for up to 3 weeks. You can also freeze your cut-up cantaloupe and use it again in a similar application!


2 cups of cantaloupe

1 cup of coconut milk

½ cup of frozen pineapple

Pinch of salt

Ice, if needed

Extra sweetener of choice, if needed


  1. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until desired consistency!
