Cantaloupe Cream Shooters. Dairy-, Sugar-, and Gluten-free.


Cantaloupe Cream Shooters An Unrefined Vegan

Kel didn’t plant cantaloupe this year. And yet we have a veritable army of volunteer plants and a steady stream of melons. Along with its real estate-hogging pals watermelon, zucchini, acorn squash, and butternut squash – also volunteers – it’s taking over the garden with umbrella-sized leaves and grasping tendrils. (One of the unsung benefits of composting – “free” vegetables the next season!) Cantaloupe is the quintessential summer fruit with its sweet juice and delicate flavor. These refreshing mini-smoothies come together in just a couple of minutes, keeping you out of the kitchen and in the garden – wrestling with the volunteers.

    Sounds really refreshing. Volunteers are always welcome! That is a downside of cold composting – the seeds get ground up, but I am lazy enough that there are usually a few volunteers from the things that fall to the ground or the lettuce that bolts 😉

      We’re terribly lazy. We have little tomato plants everywhere, basil, potatoes – – it’s free-range around here!
