It’s hardly surprising that the cantaloupe with its pleasantly cooling and invigorating flavour and aroma has fast become the popular choice among melons. Containing minimal calories, it is also a wonderful source of Vitamin A due to its dense beta-carotene capacity and also qualifies as an excellent source of potassium, vitamin B6, dietary fibre, foliate, and niacin (vitamin B3).
Here’s how you can enjoy cantaloupes this summer:
• Blend in carbonated water to freshly squeezed cantaloupe juice for a delicious reviving drink
• Strain cantaloupe juice and skinned fresh peaches in a mixer to make a scrumptious cold soup. For added taste, add a dash of freshly squeezed limes and honey
• Eat cantaloupe slices on its own or for an interesting addition, add yogurt and chopped mint on top
• Cut cantaloupes in half in a horizontally, remove the seeds and use each half as a container in which to dish out fruit salad
