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.
