At less than 100 calories per serving, this cantaloupe-veggie smoothie is a great treat anytime of the day! Did you know that cantaloupe is an excellent source of vitamin A and vitamin C? One cup of diced cantaloupe contains 106% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin A and 95% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C. Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant that is essential to eye health; it protects eyes from infection and gives you good vision. As one of the best antioxidants, vitamin A also fights against lung and oral cavity cancers. Vitamin C is said to be one of the safest and most effective nutrients. Consumption of vitamin C helps the body scavenge harmful oxygen-free radicals, protect against immune system deficiencies, prenatal health problems, cardiovascular disease, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling. So, go ahead, make yourself a cantaloupe-veggie smoothie and enjoy it knowing you are giving your body vitamins that it needs.
