Like I promised on Saturday, I’m here again, I’ll try not to disappear for so long without notice next time, make una forgive me.
Golden melon or sweet melon as its called on the streets is in season again and I want us to enjoy this bright summer fruit before it disappears. Its as cheap as N50-N150 for a large fruit, packed with refreshing fluids and a lovely honeydew flavour, you don’t want to miss its goodness.
Many times when I pass vendors, I see the golden melons paired with cucumber which I guess is also in season from its abundance in the market, this got me wondering if perhaps they are to be eaten together or that they go well together so I decided to try and to my utter delight they do!
Naturally the golden melon is sweeter when eaten with the skin but not particularly sugary so like I discovered on Saturday that pineapple goes well with honeydew melon, I combined all three fruits for this awesome refreshing juice!
Ingredients : ( serves 2 )
1 medium golden honeydew melon
1 thick slice of ripe queen pineapple
1/2 large cucumber
Wash the cucumber, peel and cut into small pieces. Peel the pineapple and cut into cubes as well. You don’t have to peel the golden melon, just remove the seeds.
Combine all in your juice but if you use a manual juicer like mine, then you might need to add 1/2 cup of cold water to get it started.
Azu 🙂 .
* Tips : for extra sweetness add an extra slice of pineapple.
