If you are calorie conscious or under restricted diet, this smoothie is especially for you. It is nutty flavoured, rich, creamy and at the same time, No sugar and Less in Calories. It is a “No guilt” smoothie for scorching heat.With Summer at its peak, we are one happy family who consumes lots of musk melon and water melon on every day basis. I usually feel very bad to discard power packed melon seeds into dustbin.
Muskmelon has lot to offer, fruit itself is fibre rich, vitamin rich and seeds which you usually throw it away is even more nutritious. Seeds are high in fibre, plant-based protein, minerals, calcium and Omega-3 and when you add this to prepare smoothies, it gives very smooth, creamy texture without adding any high calorie substance. It is very ideal for diabetic, weight loss or even for children.
Here I have added inner core (flesh and seed part) of one musk melon fruit to give thick texture as well as nutty taste and water melon chunks to give sweetish taste.
Muskmelon inner core – from one muskmelon
Watermelon – one cup
Sea salt – ¼ tea spoon
Pepper powder – ¼ tea spoon
-Peel outer skin from one muskmelon, collect inner core with seed and proceed.
-I have not used fruit part. It can be consumed as you wish.
-Take water melon chunks.
-Take your juicer jar, put inner core of musk melon, water melon chunks, sea salt, pepper powder and churn.
– Sieve this liquid and discard the roughage and serve smoothie by adding a couple of ice cubes to beat the heat.
