The honey dew melon that sat in the fridge for a few days made its presence felt by flavouring everything from the milk (vessel covered with a lid) to the butter (closed butter case)…… while K mentioned that the tea tasted different, I racked my brains about what to do with it…..we had so much fruit stocked up that cutting the melon open wasn’t such a good idea. One because we couldn’t finish it in one go, two because the cut fruit would rapidly lose its flavour and sweetness……we couldn’t take it out of the fridge cos it would just perish….talk about being caught between the devil and the deep blue sea….only this time it was the melon and the refrigerator……then I remembered that my favourite fix while at work at the fresh juice counter used to be “kharbuza shake”, creamy, frothy and totally yummy. Between trainings, while I took my breaks this was the only thing that I used to have time for and it was filling as well as nutritious…..most things that are healthy have a reputation of being tasteless, but not my tarbuza shake…it has a fantastic blend of texture, flavour and sweetness….with no added sugar (mostly)….its great as breakfast, with breakfast, or a snack supplement….so this is how the honey dew melon found nirvana…..4 glasses of fabulous shake….between K and i…..it was nature ka nasha all the way!! Cheers!!
this also is going off to Meeta for her Monthly Mingle…this month is Liquid dreams
5-6 cups chilled melon chunks (musk or honey dew)
1 cup water
½ cup milk
1 tablespoon Sugar / honey (totally optional…avoid if the melon is sweet enough)
Liquidise all of the above in a food processor. Pour into glasses and serve.
Using cold fruit means you wouldn’t have to chill the drink before serving. If you chill it, mix well before pouring / serving.
