Cantaloupe Milkshake

I have to admit that I’d never heard of a Cantaloupe Milkshake before I saw this video, but now I’m dying to try one. These gals from Show Me the Curry seem to have what looks like a winner here! The only thing is that I think this leans more toward a cantaloupe smoothie than a cantaloupe milkshake. I’d swap in vanilla ice cream for the milk or ice to make it more ‘milkshakey’.

One other thing I love and learned from this video is a unique way to measure the main ingredients in a milkshake or even a smoothie. They start the recipe out by pouring the main ingredients (fruit, milk and ice) into two glasses. When finished, the recipe makes [surprise!] just enough to fill those same glasses. Absolutely brilliant!

How to Make a Cantaloupe Milkshake

Fill a glass with cantaloupe, then pour milk into the glass to the top. Fill another glass with ice cubes to the top. Add both to a blender, then add a small amount (1/4 teaspoon) of cardamom powder. Add sweetener, if desired. Blend well, and pour into the original glasses.

As I said above, I’d be tempted to use ice cream in the recipe. Perhaps the best way to do this is to use ice cream instead of ice when filling the second glass. You may still need to add some ice to cool the drink fully. Be sure to store the cantaloupe in the refrigerator for an hour or two before making the shake if you go the ice cream route to help keep the ice cream from melting.

  1. oh wow! Looks great!

  2. Very good video. Cardamon (sp?) is an unusual spice. I’ve had it in cooked bulgar…very good.

    Do you have to use that powder stuff? I do not know what that is either. You can also use cocoa powder! YUMMY! Or you could put strawberies and melted chocolate so then you would have a chocolate and strawberrie milkshake! It looks so good! I will try to make it somtime and see how it I love your tips! Igot another milkshake you can make on your videos! All you have to do is put in 1 cup of milk a tablepoon of sugar and a cap full of vanilla.

    omg i made it after i seen this short clip and it tasted heavenly

  5. Cirsium75 says:

    I wonder if you can use just any blender to make that I have a blender but its kind of old and not very powerful would it still break the ice up?

  6. el84oro says:

    i was just wondering if ice cream should be a major ingredient especially since it gives the shake its thickness………..oh and also if one uses ice cream, are ice cubes still necessary?thx

  7. ShowMeTheCurry says:

    Ice cream would be delicious and thick, but this is a lower fat option. You can skip the ice cubes if using ice cream, or use just a little ice cream and a few ice cubes.

    I’ve never heard of anyone making a milkshake without ice cream… of course, I live in Mississippi. Down here, no one watches their weight. Then again, I’ve never heard of a cantaloupe milkshake before, either. It looks delicious. I will have to try this one. I’d most definitely add a scoop of ice cream or two. Thanks for the idea. 😀

  12. wolfstriked says:

    try papaya….awesome!! Also you can freeze the fruit and forgo the ice for a less watery drink.

  13. Those recipes look delicious! Great write up. I will give you a site where I got real fruit on powder form, I mix it with milk and ice cream to go healthy. they have cantaloupe, pineapple, papaya, soursop, mango, apple. A lot of fruits and veggies.Enjoy guys! http://www.freshlydried.com
