Largely because it’s winter in Chile (and I’m often dressed as a veritable sheep, there’s so much woolen clothing to be had), I’ve started remembering the wonder that are apricots, cherries, watermelons and honeydews…and craving juice like no one’s business.
I made this frappe of life on an almost daily basis throughout summer and it brought instant happiness with each and every vibrant green slurp.
For those in the northern hemisphere; enjoy! For the rest of us; this is what’s waiting on the other side of winter…
Holy Hell Honeydew Melon Ice Frappe
Fruity Weapons of Awesome
- One melon
- Tall-ish glass of water
- De-seed melon. Scoop out the flesh (and dice you’re feeling fancy). Chuck it in the blender.
- Add water and ice. Blend thoroughly.
- Makes four glasses.
Seriously, if the superbly light green colour fit for a fairy’s ball gown doesn’t get you, the taste will. No sugar necessary – the melon packs a pretty sweet punch.
Best of all, if you’re not a melon fan (though, who isn’t?) then just about any summer fruit can substitute. Think mango, peach, nectarine, plum…
If this isn’t the ambrosia of the Gods, then I don’t know what is.
