Saturday, during the day, London was hot. By the time it got to the magrib it was pouring with rain and feeling cold. Despite the weather the melon drink that I had craved during the day hit the spot for me in the evening.
This requires a bit of attention but isn’t difficult to make. The addition of lime lifts the taste and makes it even more refreshing. Refreshing for a hot day and also after spicy food.
1 Honeydew Melon
1 x 250ml coconut water
1 x lime
Pomegranate seeds to sprinkle.
Chop and peel the melon, remove the seeds. Chop into small cubes. Keep a handful of the melon aside. Then put the rest of the melon in a blender with the coconut water, the zest of a lime and the juice of half a lime. Blend, then put into a shallow box in the freezer. Leave it the freezer for 2 hours. Remove from the freezer then scrape the frozen sides back into the centre with a fork. Continue to do this every hour until you have something ressembling a coarse frozen slush.
Serve in glasses with a spoon, sprinkle with the reserved melon and a sprinkle of pomegrenate seeds.
