Cantaloupe, carrots and coconut milk combine to form a dreamilicious nourishing lassi.
Have you seen the ginormous cantaloupes in the markets these days? I could not resist getting one. But once I got it home, I was wondering how I could get my family to eat so much cantaloupe! I usually get the normal sized ones and make the Fruit Chaat with the tangy yummy dressing.
Cantaloupes are rich in potassium, vitamins and fiber and have other nutritional benefits but that pitch generally does not work in persuading my husband to eat more of it….
So I thought of making a lassi to go with our dinner. I love a cooling lassi and often make Mango Lassi, Ginger Peach Kefir Lassi with Chia or the Creamy Avocado Kefir Lassi. This time, I decided to use coconut milk. To the cantaloupe chunks, I added grated carrots for additional nutrition and color. The coconut milk gave it a yummy creamy richness. I added just a touch of honey as the cantaloupe was super sweet. For a vegan option, you can use brown sugar instead.
I am happy to report that it was well received. This dreamilicious lassi was perfect with our dinner on the patio at sunset! It would be equally awesome at a sunrise breakfast too.
