Chayote smoothie

Chayote is refreshing. There's no need to add ice to a summer's smoothie to get the same effect. You can add almost any fruit from the kitchen counter fruit bowl and this works.


1 chayote
1/2 lb. cantaloupe pieces
1 tsp cinnamon
4 oz. almond milk
1 tbsp honey
1 lime

Yield: 2 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes, plus 2 hours refrigeration.
