Vegan Muskmelon (Cantaloupe) Juice / Chibda Ros

Muskmelon Milk Shake
This is what my Mom used to make for us, on a hot summer afternoon.  Muskmelon or Cantaloupe Juice with fresh coconut milk, called as Chibda Ros in Konkani.  An Indian Muskmelon, called as Kharbuja in Hindi, Tarbuj in Marathi and Chibad in Konkani, looks slightly different than an American Cantaloupe, but tastes just the same.

Coconut Milk - 2 cups
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Green Cardamom/Elaichi - 2

How to make Cantaloupe Milk Shake:
  • Peel the muskmelon skin and chop into bite size chunks.  Make sure the cantaloupe is well ripe and the outer skin looks more yellow and not green.
  • Puree the melon chunks, coconut milk and sugar in a blender.  You can add more milk if you want it thinner.
  • This juice tastes good with regular dairy milk as well.
Muskmelon or Cantaloupe
  • Add ground cardamom powder and muskmelon milk shake is ready.  Serve it chilled.  Traditionally, Chibda Ros is served with Phovu (Thin Parched Rice).  But we love it as a refreshing juice.
