Ingredients

1 melon 800 g
1/4 cup apple juice 65 mL
2 tbsp sugar 24 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful for this recipe.

Method

  1. Cut the melon in half crosswise and remove the seeds. Using a melon baller, cut 4 balls per serving and set them aside in the refrigerator. Using a spoon, scrape out the remaining pulp, dice it coarsely and transfer it to the jar of a blender.
  2. Pour in the juice and sugar, then pulse until very smooth. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for at least 1 h before serving.
  3. When ready, pour the «soup» into cups, add the melon balls and garnish with mint leaves. Serve.

Remarks

Keep up to 2 days in the refrigerator.

Very fancy and easy to do. I normally make the original version with alcohol, but we had guests with kids. They all loved it.

This did not work for me. If you like melon there are better ways to make it interesting. I didn't enjoy the texture and would have preferred to just eat it in chunks.
