Cucumber Cantaloupe Smoothie

What you need: 

1/2 cantaloupe, very ripe
1/2 large or 2 small cucumbers, chopped
1 orange, peeled and sectioned
Fresh ginger, minced (as much to your taste -- I used about a teaspoon)
Cayenne pepper (optional, as desired)
1/2 - 1 cup water

What you do: 

This smoothie is made with alkaline ingredients and the ginger and cayenne pepper help to clear the sinuses if you're feeling under the weather!
1) Combine cucumber, orange, and a bit of water (about 1/3 cup) and blend until liquefied. Add minced ginger and blend on high 20 to 30 seconds. Add cantaloupe and a little more water (maybe another 1/3-1/2 cup). Blend on high for about 1 minute; you may add more water until it reaches desired consistency (or, instead of water, try throwing 2 or 3 ice cubes in there to chill it a bit).
2) Add a dash or two of cayenne pepper as it blends. Pour into 2 glasses, share with a friend, and enjoy!
Source of recipe: I wanted to alkalize, so I bought these ingredients, threw them into a blender, and it came out tasty!
