It is hot and sweltering, humid and sticky, I want something long and cool to drink, but don’t want cold coffee or a milkshake, would be too heavy pre-lunch. So, a fruit medley: a couple of fruits, a dash of black salt and some ice cubes.
The result is a long tall cool glass of a lovely diffused orange, not overly sweet and easy to make.
1 medium sized orange
Melon ripe (i used honey dew): 2 slices
Watermelon: 1 slice
Cold water: 100 ml
Ice cubes: 4-5 crushed
Black salt to taste
Peel, de-seed and dice melon and watermelon, peel, de-seed orange, put all in a juicer/blender with filtering mesh, add crushed ice, salt and juice/blend.
If your blender does not have a filtering mesh, you may need to strain concoction. Pour into a tall glass, add additional ice cubes, if wanted, sit back and enjoy 🙂
