Sugarfree Muskmelon & Cucumber Cooler | Summer Recipes

This week, at Blogging Marathon, we begin with Kids Delight – Cooking with Fruits theme, hosted by Harini. Fruits at my place are generally consumed whole, and touchwood the entire family loves to grab a fruit or two everyday. Except making aam ras (mango fruit pulp) , I generally serve all fruits whole – in a salad or cut into cubes. And with a husband who dishes out sugarfree mocktails / smoothies, we occasionally indulge in these sugar free treats.

Today is a super delicious sugarfree cooler with cucumber, muskmelon , chikoo (sapodilla fruit) and pomegranate pearls. This is more a blending – pureeing – serving kind of stuff than an actual recipe, and you can pretty much have any more or less ingredients going in to soothe ur palate. With the rest of the world (except may be india and some other countries) experiencing Summer, this could be the perfect thirst quencher ! Sugarfree too :)

Prep time : 10 mins, zero cook, serves : 2

You would need:

Pomogranate pearls – 1 cup (reserve a few for topping)
British Cucumber – peeled and cubed – ½ cup
Muskmelon – ripe (peeled and cubed)
Sapota (or sapodilla fruit) - 1 medium - peeled and cubed
Ice cubes, crushed – ½ cup
Chat Masala – ½ tsp
Black pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Honey – 1 TBSP (we didn’t use)
Mint leaves – 3 or 4 (optional)


Blend all ingredients, filter if required (we had it with the fibre on) , top with ice cubes and some more chat masala and slurp it up :-))
