Cantaloupe Coolers

Copyright © 2013 Grace Clerc. All rights reserved.

This is a simple drink that I grew up with in the Philippines.  There is really not much to making this drink but fruit, water, milk and sugar, yet it’s quite refreshing!  If you Google it, you will see that it’s made in many varieties, depending on everyone’s preference.  I never even realized that you can add milk to it as I have always had it without.  Regardless, below you will find my own, simple recipe for cantaloupe coolers and, perhaps you can put your own twist to this drink, as well ;-)  Cheers!-gcc

Farm Fresh Strawberry Power Smoothie!

I was definitely early birding this morning, at 2:30 am to be exact.  You know what they say, ‘the early bird gets the worm…’ so after catching up on some blogging and a quick Cup ‘O Joe…off to our local farmer’s market I go!  My total shopping spree was $58.00 and my goal coming in was to buy fresh strawberries to make an Eton’s Mess.  So strawberries, amongst other goodies and back home I go.  My younger son loves to snack on strawberries and I can’t wait to make him the Eton’s Mess but before that, a special request for a strawberry smoothie…my way :-)
