• 1.25 kg sweet aromatic melon flesh (cantaloupe, Galia or honeydew work well), chopped into large chunks
  • thumb-sized piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • juice 3 oranges
  • 2 tsp sugar, plus extra to taste
  • squeeze of lemon juice (optional)
  • lots of ice, to serve


  • STEP 1

    Blend the melon, ginger, orange juice and sugar together until smooth – you may need to do this in batches. Add the lemon juice if the orange isn’t very tart. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, if you like, and adjust the sugar to taste. Serve in glasses over lots of ice.
