Making this recipe was easy . Plus, the end result was delicious and just as promised, quite refreshing . A perfect summer treat! If you like honeydew melons, give this recipe a try.
Syrup ( 100 ml water + 100 g rock or palm sugar)
1 honeydew melon
3 nectarine (alternative: Avocado, mango, watermelon, peach)
200 g fresh milk
200 ml coconut milk
1 Cup tapioca Or sago pearl
1. Make syrup. Bring 100 ml water and 100 g rock or palm sugar into a boil. Let it simmer until sugar dissolves. Take out from the heat and transfer into a bowl. Allow to cool.
. Bring 5 cups of water into a boil. Pour tapioca pearls. Cover pot and cook for about 8 mins or until most pearls become translucent Give the pot a good stir once in a while to avoid pearls from sticking together . Once cooked, pour tapioca pearl into a strainer under running water. Drain excess water, transfer into a bowl and set aside .
3. Cut honeydew melon into half. Scrap out seeds. Using a melon baller, scoop the flesh out . You could also dice it. Divide diced/ balled melon into 2 portions. Chill the half and keep the other half for the next step.
4. Blend the remaining half of honeydew melon together with fresh milk, coconut milk and syrup.
Refrigerate for hours or overnight. The mixture thickens as it chills. Do not mix sago pearls at this point. It will absorb the liquid.
5. In a mixing bowl, put chilled honeydew melon and other diced fruits ( I used nectarine) and sago pearls. Pour the chilled ,blended mixture. Give it a good stir. Serve and let this treat do its magic..And oh yeah, enjoy it as much as I did!
