I had been thinking about ways to utilize the Sweet Melon (also called Golden Melon) when a Nutrition expert and lecturer that I am privileged to know, told me about the Sweet Melon and coconut combo and I was inspired. Sweet Melon is the fruit in season. I just found out about one of the local names from a colleague who is a Northerner. She called it Gwanda Milo.
On my way home, I bought one Gwanda Milo (Sweet Melon), Coconut, and Pineapple. The coconut and pineapple is a very popular fruit combination that is generally loved so I decided to incorporate the Sweet Melon into that mix. Instead of the regular blend-all smoothie, I decided to use my Sweet Melon as the bowl. I removed the brown back of the coconut so that it would not influence the color of my smoothie and I blended it with some pineapple and some scoops of the Sweet Melon. I added some fresh mint leaves I have been growing to give it a nice twist.
It was delicious and I got my family to eat some of the Sweet Melon which was my goal of making it in the first place; to encourage others to add variety to their foods. So, thumbs up for me. Keeping it chilled before serving would have been the ultimate though. I am glad that I have found a way to use the Sweet Melon and I hope that you can create something nice too. I do not spend so much time to spend on these things because I have two toddlers who need attention and I still managed to get this done today. So, please try something different with the sweet Melon, increase your intake of fruits generally and be happy.
It is good to share, God bless you for more creativity ideas.
