Melon Milk – Stay Cool This Summer

Melon Milk
Melon Milk
This simple melon milk recipe is so delicious, I am almost positive that they serve it in heaven. This melon milk recipe is also great if you happen to open a melon that isn't fully ripe. Blending a melon that isn't completely ripe with a bit of natural sweetener, such as stevia, can really bring out the melon's sweetness and flavor. You can use any melon for this recipe; I just happen to love honeydew melons. Adding ice to this recipe is the final step to creating a cooling and refreshing drink to keep you cool all summer.

Ingredients:
  • 2 Cups Honeydew Melon
  • 1/2 Cup Ice
  • Favorite Sweetner to Taste (I use white stevia powder)
Instructions:
Remove the seeds from your favorite melon and scoop out two cups of the melon meat into a high speed blender such as the Vitamix. Then add the ice and your favorite sweetener. The amount of sweetener you need will depend on the ripeness and natural sweetness of the melon that you use. I find that a few pinches of white stevia powder is usually enough, but you could use honey or no sweetener at all. Blend until the ice is crushed and the melon milk is frothy. Enjoy on a hot day!

It taste better if you take the seeds and make a milk with the seeds. Use a milk seed bag, wash the blender and blend the milk with the melon. It taste amazing. Like milkshake, put some vainilla and enjoy it!

Wonderful idea. Thank you Marcela! If you don’t have a sprout bag you can get one here: http://www.rawglow.com/nylonsproutbag

I second the vote for using the seeds. I scoop out the seeds of either a honeydew or cantaloupe and send them through the blendtec first, then add the flesh. So rich and creamy. Last time I added frozen blueberries and got a wonderful slushy. Perfect way to beat the heat.

Neat! Thanks for sharing. I’ll have to it with the blueberries.

Question on Janice’s comment

Do you blend the raw seeds without any liquid? Then add the blended seeds with the fruit to the blended seeds?
Will there be pulp? Any need for a nut bag?
Thanks

It would be pretty difficult to blend the melon seeds with no liquid. Your best chance is to blend the seeds with a little of the fresh melon and then strain the mixture through a sprout bag to get rid of the grainy texture. Hope this helps. Good luck – Cecilia

Isnt it amazing how honeydew and certain other melons taste exactly like milk only way so much better ? 😀

Yes it’s uncanny. Also, pressed and filtered carrot juice can sometimes taste like milk too! Thanks for your comment.
