Melon and Cucumber Coolers

This morning one of the crew on board requested melon coolers! Smoothies are usually something I make on the ship in the afternoon, as like an afternoon pick-me-up to keep people going until dinner. Today was super humid all day so this actually made a really good mid-morning refresher for a change.

I like to add spirulina powder to this melon cooler recipe for extra nutrition- if you don’t like the taste of spirulina then this is perfect as the other flavours mask it well.

Melon Coolers

 

  • 1 large english cucumber
  • 5 cups of melon, cantaloupe works well
  • the pulp of 1 passionfruit
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves
  • ½ Tbsp spirulina
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 cups ice cubes

Place everything in a high powers blender and blend for 30-60 seconds. You may need to add up to ¼ cup water to get it going if your blender isn’t too great (like mine!)
