Today is a special day as I mark my blog's first ever recipe that I'll be sharing courtesy of my friend Jay.
This recipe came about when I visited him in Bulacan and we just felt like we had to whip up something like we always do each time I visit.
Have you ever done a shake without using any ice? Well this is the first of its kind.
So we looked into his fridge and all we had was some evaporated milk and frozen melon. We actually tried to defrost the the fruit but since it was as hard as a rock we just jumped in and put it in the blender.
Here's how we did it.
1/2 whole melon
1 cup evaporated milk
5 tbs sugar
Peel the melon from its skin, take the seeds out and refrigerate until it is completely frozen.
Mix the evaporated milk and sugar in the blender.
Cut the frozen melon in small cube like sizes before putting it in the blender.
Blend until mixture has a smooth consistency.
You may adjust the sweetness by adding more sugar or condensed milk.
Pour the mixture in a glass and top with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon if desired.
I actually liked this recipe so much because as the beverage warms up you don't get that bland watery part so much because it doesn't have any ice in it. One more thing that I should mention is that this is very rich in fiber as you get more of the fruit compared to ordinary shake.
I am very sure this would be a big hit to both children and child-at-heart people!
