‘Melon sa Malamig’ is a melon based drink. This is a traditional cold drink from the region of Philippines. And just from the name of it, I can feel, the beachy waves and light breeze! Sa Malamig translates to “cold” in native language from Philippines. This is definitely a great drink for a hot summer day.

To make this drink you will have to shred half a melon into thin shreds (you can do this with shredders or even put it in the blender for 5 seconds) These shreds are combined with 3 cups of water and mixed well. Further add 2 to 4 tablespoons of honey (depends on taste of melon) For an added boost of flavor, stir in some drops of vanilla extract (this will add a sweet and appealing scent) then add 4-6 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk (this will add thickness and taste to the drink) Some even include a little bit of lemon juice, to give a tangy edge.

Once you have added the condensed milk, serve and drink immediately (if left for longer the melon and milk proteins breakdown and produce a bitter flavor) This drink is refreshing and tasteful.

Caution: this drink is very high in calories!
