Melon Chiller is a fruit drink made with shredded cantaloupe and condensed milk. It's creamy, refreshing, and a delicious way to hydrate!
Servings: 6 servings
- 1 large cantaloupe
- 4 cups cold water
- 1 can (14 ounces) condensed milk
Cut melon into half. With a spoon, scrape seeds and pulp.
Place pulp and seeds in a bowl, add 1 cup of the water, and repeatedly press down with the back of a spoon to extract the juice. In a fine-mesh sieve, strain. Discard seeds and reserve the juice.
Using a melon shredder, shred cantaloupe meat.
In a pitcher, combine shredded cantaloupe, the reserved juice (from straining pulp), and the remaining 3 cups water.
Add condensed milk and stir to disperse. Serve in glasses over ice. Consume immediately.
- Consume the drink immediately once the condensed milk is added as chemical compounds in the melon react to the milk over time, resulting in an acrid or bitter taste.
- I used one full can of condensed milk to allow for the dilution of the mixture from ice. If serving it without ice, adjust the amount of condensed milk according to desired sweetness.
