Melon Juice

Melon juice made of shredded cantaloupe and simple syrup is a refreshing drink you’ll love year round. Bursting with fresh fruit flavor, it’s a tasty and healthy way to hydrate!

We’re still in the center Spring, and Central Texas weather conditions is as of now beginning to sizzle up. Our region has a damp sub-heat and humidity, so I can simply envision how sweltering and tacky it will get come Summertime.

Good thing I work from home and don’t need to brave the scorching heat. And good thing cantaloupes are in season and at their sweetest because I can have this refreshing melon juice to keep me cool and hydrated!

How to Make Melon Juice

Using a sharp knife, cut the melons in half. Scoop off the seeds and pulp with a spoon and place in a bowl. Add about 1 cup of water and press with the back of the spoon to extract the juice. Strain in a fine-mesh sieve; reserve the liquid and discard the seeds.

Rather than basically mixing in sugar, I propose making the additional stride of making a straightforward syrup to improve the beverage uniformly. Sugar doesn’t break down well in cool fluids and will in general settle at the base. In the event that you favor a better other option, attempt honey or agave.

If serving the drink over ice, you might want to make it a tad sweeter as the ice will melt and dilute the taste over time.

Can You Add Milk to Cantaloupe Juice?

Melons have a chemical compound that interacts and breaks down proteins in milk which results in an acrid taste. If you prefer a creamy drink without the bitter taste, stir in the milk just before serving.
