Serves 2

This watermelon shake makes a tasty and nutritious alternative to a
regular milkshake on a hot summer day. Watermelon is considered very
“cooling” in Chinese medicine. Consume the shake immediately after
making to avoid oxidation of the nutrients from the fresh watermelon
or cantaloupe.

  • 1 ice-cold watermelon or cantaloupe (approx. 2-1/4 lbs/1 kg), pitted and without peel
  • 1 portion ice-cold “Homemade Coconut Milk” (see separate recipe)
  • 5-6 tbs honey
  • 6 green cardamom pods, roasted and the seeds ground finely
  • ice cubes, crushed

Cooking Instructions

1) Combine all the ingredients except the ice cubes in a
food processor and whiz until smooth. Add crushed ice and stir.

2) Serve in two tall glasses.
