Muskmelon Smoothie – Cantaloupe Smoothie

June 9, 2015 DrinksSummer Special  8 comments

Muskmelon or canataloupe or khirni pazham (in tamil) is a refreshing fruit, perfectly hydrating for the summer. I can have this as is, but Chotu is such a fussy eater especially when it comes to fruits. This Muskmelon Smoothie is yet another successful attempt 

I still remember those young days, when we used to dry the seeds in the sun and eat it. Due to less sunlight here, I just discarded them 

So here u go with a simple and truly exhilarating drink, and if u are a fussy person like Chotu this is for you 

Now to the recipe…

Tips:

  1. The muskmelon’s skin will be quite hard to peel. U can scoop out the flesh with a spoon too.
  2. U can use honey instead of sugar or skip it totally depending upon the sweetness of the muskmelon.
  3. The Muskmelon Smoothie tastes best when consumed immediately.
  4. U can use lemon juice instead of orange juice too. May be just 1/2 a lemon.
