Those that know me know I’m not a big drinker. I like the idea of happy hour because, in theory, it’s a time to kick back, unwind, and connect with a good group of friends. There’s no greater form of social engagement than sharing a meal or a drink.
But because I almost never drink, I often feel like I miss out on this “sharing,” if you will, and the delicious frozen drinks that come with it.
That’s why I love making this Canta-nana Chiller for my nearest and dearest. It’s very similar to my watermelon-banana frosty, but it’s more of a subtle sweet.
Of course, this recipe only makes one, but I hope you end up doubling or tripling or quadrupling to share with others.
1 cup cantaloupe, cubed or balled
1/2 banana, frozen and sliced
splash of vanilla
twist of lemon
optional: stevia or organic maple syrup
optional: rum, gin, or other spirit of choice
Simply blend the frozen fruit for a few minutes, then add in remaining ingredients. If you have a frappe option, I recommend using that.
