Melon seeds are one of those undervalued parts of this fruit that always end up in the trash can of every home.
But during these years I have learned to give them the value they deserve, taking advantage of the great benefits they can bring to our health, whether due to their high content of both fiber and vitamins and proteins.
Today I will use them to prepare a delicious gazpacho with melon seeds and prawns. You can't miss it because it is such an original and refreshing recipe that it will surely become one of those regular dishes in your kitchen 😉
First we must learn how to prepare melon seed milk:
MELON SEED MILK
This milk is super easy to make and we can incorporate it into many of our usual recipes for both lunch and dinner.
To begin, we separate the seeds from the melon flesh. We leave them in water for a day so that they are soft. Discard the water and put them in a blender glass, adding mineral water until we have a milk texture.
We let it rest in the refrigerator for about 2 hours and ready we have our milk with which we can make gazpachos, smoothies, even dress a salad.
