Honey-dew-melon-smoothie-001
     Summer is here and we have to keep our body cool from inside too… Honeydew melon is one of my favourite and Vj’s Favourite too… Mostly I would prefer to eat the fruit, but Vj loves to have in juice form. My MIL makes Kirini palam juice just by cutting the fruit and scooping out the pulp using a ladle itself. I do the same for this if its a super ripe fruit or if its a bit firm, then I cut into small pieces and peel off the skin and grind with ice to make smoothie.  I am not sure if honeydew melon  and the kirini pazham we get in Chennai are the same. Do share if you know!
    Its so simple but tastes and smells great and cools your body as well.

Honeydew-melon-smoothie

Ingredients  (For 2 glasses)

Honeydew melon 1/2
Sugar or honey 1 tblsp
Ice cubes(optional) As needed

 

Method 

  1. Peel the skin along with the thick part of the fruit, remove the seeds in the middle and chop roughly. Transfer the fruit with sugar and ice cube to a blender. Blend until smooth. You can also grind it as such and keep refrigerated.honey1
    
   The smoothie is supposed to be thick.So no need to add water. Its very perfect for breakfast, so filling and comforting!
