This recipe was sent to me by Aruna. She has sent me a lot of recipes and I owe her for the immense support she is giving to Aayisrecipes. I have been trying many of her recipes in last few days and loved this milkshake. Here is what she said about this milkshake, “It is summer and the heat is killing. This is good milkshake, and in case it fruit is sweet then no need of sugar”.
Mashmelons are called as ‘chibbad’ in Konkani. The Indian name for mashmelon/musk melon/cantalope is ‘Karbooja’. They are used in a sweet dish called as ‘HashaLe’ (I will post the recipe soon). But I had never bought it here before. With the kind of heat we are experincing here these days, any kind of milkshake would catch my immediate attention.
I tweaked the proportions to suit our taste. This had the distinguising flavour of melon. Increase the amount of melon if desired.
Note: Honey dew melon leaves a tinge of bitter taste to the milkshake, so be careful if using this melon, since I had used this melon, I have reduced the amount of fruit considerably(have used just 2 pieces) in the milkshake. I think cantalope should solve this problem.
