Frozen Melon Yogurt Pops

Jul 20, 2021 | Dessert

Cantaloupe is a delicious summer fruit with so many health benefits.

Cantaloupe is a juicy orange fruit that is related to watermelon and honeydew melons. 

It’s filled with compounds called phytonutrients. Phytonutrients boost immunity and help fight off diseases. 

Cantaloupe is rich in fiber, water and vitamin C! 

When choosing a cantaloupe, look for a firm melon with no obvious bruising .

They should feel heavy for their size and appear a bit more yellow as that may indicate that it’s sweeter. 

You can enjoy cantaloupe with sweet or savory foods such as a cold summer soup or with cheese & prosciutto.
