Cantaloupe Lassis

2014-07-19 10.14.05This morning I made cantaloupe lassis:

1/2 cantaloupe, cubed (approx 2 cups)
1 cup greek yogurt, preferably full fat
juice of 1/4 lime
pinch of cayenne pepper (maybe I’ll add more next time)

Blend with a big handful of ice cubes.

Serves 2

 

Here’s a great method to use when preparing melon, from my good friend Amelia Saltsman:

The cantaloupe was in my CSA box this week, and is SO Sweet! The other half is cooling in my refrigerator. Mmmmm! Maybe I’ll serve it with vanilla ice cream, which always reminds me of my favorite way of eating halo-halo when I was a child: Shaved ice, cantaloupe shreds, topped with evaporated milk, and sugar I think — and that’s all! There are a dozen other things that are meant for halo-halo, but I would skip all the others if I had a choice.
