Dear readers,

Today, it looked as if the sky had finally recovered from the storms that plagued it. They were only temporary. Sometimes I have to remind myself that this is only temporary. Quarantine is temporary, the quarantine will end. We will go back to how things used to be. Back when I stayed at home as a personal choice and not a government mandate.

The clear sky sang spring to me, and as if the birds could read my mind, their chirping sounded amplified as I was writing my final for biology. So, in the spirit of the changing season, I decided to make a smoothie remnant of spring itself. Cantaloupe and banana seemed like the obvious choice, and I decided to add some turmeric to reach that beautiful golden color, and for the health benefits of course 😉

This smoothie is equal parts sweet and refreshing, and it only requires 4 ingredients! I know, crazy right? Sometimes the best things in life are actually quite simple.

Okay, let’s get to the recipe:


– 1 cup of canteloupe

– 1 banana

– 1/2 -1 cup of almond milk

– 1 teaspoon of turmeric


1. Add ingredients to the blender, and blend. If it’s too thick, add more almond milk.

2. Add ice to make it cold.

3. I’m pretty sure you all know how to make a smoothie
