On the outside, it looks like this:
|Looks like a Cantaloupe, right?|
But on the inside, it's all pretty and green, like this:
|Green Lantern would totally eat this.|
Freeze a melon and make a sorbet or smoothie out of it, though, and I think it's awesome.
For this one, we used 1/2 Galia melon's flesh - it was a small-medium melon if it were a cantaloupe, but I don't know how big Galia melons usually get, so it may be average for Galia.
Then the juice of one small lime
We didn't add sweetener to this one, as it was ripe as ripe could be. I used it within hours of getting it home, it was so ripe!
And the result?
Pretty darn good. I liked it. It was similar to many of these unsweetened melon sorbets - the sweet flavor is subtle, not intense, when it's frozen like this. I kind of like that. Refreshing, as cheesy as it feels to use that word. Commercials have forever ruined the term 'refreshing,' I swear. :-)
However, this melon is fairly expensive, more than cantaloupe or honeydew and personally, as someone whose not so fond of melons, it wasn't worth the extra expense unless I really needed a green melon. Definitely sweeter than honeydew, in my experience.
LOW HISTAMINE - This can be made low histamine by dropping the lime juice. Making sure it is not over-ripe should be considered, as well.
