Musk Melon Juice

Musk Melons / Cantaloupe are excellent source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. This juice is healthier too since we add very little honey for sweetness. Musk melons are on the sweeter side , so you can even skip adding honey.

Water melon and musk melons are in season during mid march in India. They taste at its best and price wise they are cheap. At my mom's home, we eat musk melon as such, cut in thin slices. Mom makes lassi with musk melon and yogurt and sugar. It tastes heavenly. My kids don't like yogurt based drinks. So I made plain melon juice without yogurt. I added little quantity of milk to make it creamier.


  • 1/4 portion of a whole musk melon
  • 2 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Milk

Directions :

1. Cut musk melon in to two pieces. It has plenty of seeds inside. Scoop out all the seeds with spoon. Discard the centre soft portion with seeds
2. Peel the edible flesh of the fruit using a sharp knife. Discard the hard outer skin
3. Roughly chop the melon pieces and add them in to a blender
4. Add honey and milk and blend everything together to smooth consistency. Adjust sugar according to your taste
5. Chill in the fridge or serve with ice cubes
