In my hub titled Top 3 Refreshing Treats to Beat the Summer Heat, I have previously mentioned being in love with the melon-cheese shake. I might be a bit biased with my love for melon and cheese and I am well aware that not everyone enjoys either of the two (seriously though, how can they not like melon OR cheese?). My relatives, for example, are fans of neither of the two main ingredients of this recipe that I have just mentioned. However, when they first sipped from their glasses full of my heavenly concoction, they couldn't help but ask for more. Sometimes, they'd randomly tell me to make melon-cheese shake because they miss the flavors.

I first discovered this flavor at the local shake shop in my university. They have all kinds of ingredients from fruits to vegetables, to chocolate chips and cookies. They also have cheese. You can ask them to mix whatever combination you think of and they'll do it. You also have the option of having milk and syrup added into your shake. Health buffs rarely have anything added to their shake but suckers for sweets such as myself can never say no to a creamy and sugary mixture. So I tried the melon and cheese combination. I got 16 oz of it for P 40.00 and voila! My love for melon-cheese shake was born.

Oh well, enough with the chatter. Bring out your blenders and let's get shaking!

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 2 pitchers of melon shake

Ingredients

  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 small carton quickmelt cheese
  • 1 whole ripe cantaloupe, quartered
  • 1-2 cup(s) sugar
  • shaved ice

Instructions

  1. Remove skin from melon then place 1 quarter in a blender, along with 4-5 slices of cheese, half cup sugar, and 1/4 cup milk.
  2. Mix at pulse then when running smoothly, you can mix on low or medium speed for another minute
  3. Check for cheese lumps at the bottom of the pitcher after blending. Pour into a tall glass and then sit back and relax.
  4. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients.

So basically, it's easy as one, two, three! I Who would've thought making a unique tasting smoothie was this easy? Try it soon and let me know what you think.

      Thank you for reading and commenting LA Elsen. :) I've always loved melons. In fact, I'd rather have melons than watermelons any day of the week. I also think it's a kind of fruit that, much like the watermelon, fills you up quickly.

      Quickmelt cheese is a special kind of cheese here in the Philippines which, as the name suggests, melts quickly. It's creamier and tastier than most cheeses. it's also a bit softer so it goes better with the drink. :) I am not familiar with the american cheese slices but you can also try googling the quickmelt cheese for reference. :) Please let me know how it turned out. I love sharing awesome recipes to other people. It's an instant mood lifter. Thanks again LA Elsen and I look forward to hearing more from you here on hubpages. :)

      I never tried a melon shake before. This sounds so good. I want to make this. What type of cheese is quickmelt cheese? Is it similar to American cheese slices. These will be great for summer. I can't wait to make them. Welcome to hubpages.

      Wow. Thank you Kathryn! I have other recipes as well that you might want to try. :) Tell me how it turned out, yeah? :)

      I couldn't help myself! Even when I should've been working, I was just here, hubbing. LOL. I guess it's because hubpages has been some sort of escape, and also a fulfillment of my life-long dream -- to be a food blogger -- or at least die trying. :) Thanks again and I'm looking forward to more years of hubbing. :)

      Wow, I am happy you have the recipe, after hearing you mention it in the other article. I'm so happy now! I will put the ingredients on my grocery list next time we order food.

      I just noticed you're new here. I didn't realize at first, because you already have a decent amount of hubs. You have been a busy girl. Welcome to HubPages!

      Thanks! I'm in love with cheese and so I try to incorporate it into every dish-- and now, drink-- i make. I also love melons so this drink is just about perfect for me, the melon balances out the saltiness of the cheese. Thank you for the feedback. :)

      Simple but less time consuming and easy to make it ready. Although melon-cheese shake is new for me. But I am sure I would have no problem with taste. As I love melon. Waiting for more new and easy recipes.

      Useful and thumb up:)
