Summer - Cantaloupe Seed Beverage

Baby Kato


I love melons, especially Cantaloupes. I was so pleased to find this recipe, which enables me to use the seeds instead of throwing them out. How wonderful is this, I get to make Agua Fresca or Horchata with the flesh and this lovely subtle drink with the seeds. It's all good.

Hope you will enjoy it too. It tastes best the day after it is made.
