Watermelon-Melon Milkshake | Easy Milkshake Recipes

Easy milkshake recipe with watermelon and melon - I am home now and amma is churning out (sometimes, quite literally!) different things to eat and drink every meal time. Yesterday around noon, we were feeling a bit peckish so she made this quick milkshake which was delicious and so much nicer than eating the fruits plain, although arguably it's healthier and better to eat fruits as is. What I love about watermelon milkshake is the gorgeous colour, especially because of adding melon which is a faint orange. 


My sister was a most obliging model for this pic, few seconds before we all downed the milkshake. You can make this milkshake in under 10 mins - all you need is some melon, chilled milk and a mixer or blender. The fruits we used were chilled overnight too so everything came together really nicely.


When making milkshake, choose ripe fruits. These tasted fabulous just as they are too - sweet and juicy. Another important component is milk. It has to be chilled and preferably whole fat, not the skim or low fat kind, although you can use what you want and have in hand. Amma gets milk from a home that raises their own cows and extracts the cream out of it so all the milk we use at home is naturally lower in fat, yet creamy.

You can make this milkshake ahead of time and store in a closed jug in the refrigerator. Just make sure not to let it sit for more than a couple hours - milkshakes are always best served fresh. Enjoy with your family or serve to guests as a welcome drink before a party.
