GERD Safe Cantaloupe Fruit Freeze

 
 
 
 
A few months ago, I have been diagnosed with GERD
And I have been cautious with everything I eat.
 
Summertime,
fresh fruit smoothies is very popular at my house.
Nowadays, 
I have to make myself a separate smoothie from everyone else,
because I have to avoid one or two important ingredients on smoothies.
Yogurt or milk is to be avoided
because of it contains a considerable amount of fat.
I was told by my physician that a little skim milk won't hurt.
 
I'm trying to still be able to eat and drink what I love.
I just need to replace some ingredients to avoid trigger for my reflux.
 
And for you with NO GERD,
NO acid reflux, NO heartburn and NOT lactose intolerant,
LUCKY YOU!
see note below for a delicious substitution
to make a delicious creamy smoothie.
 
 
 
 
Ingredients:
 
 
1/2 a cantaloupe, cut in chunks and rind removed
1 cup crushed ice
1/2 cup skim milk or filtered water
Agave or Pure cane sugar or Honey, to sweeten to your taste
 
 
Method:
 
  • Cursh ice until it has the consistency of shave ice.
  • Add all ingredients in the blender.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Garnish with Melon Balls and a sprig of mint.
 
 
Note:

  • For my NON-GERD, No-Heartburn, No-Acid reflux sufferer friends, you can substitute skim milk with evaporated milk for a delicious creamy smoothie.
