Funto’s funtime tropical sweet melon cocont milk orange and cucumber juice.
I have always watched and learned from other people’s recipes,
Never really thought that in no distant time I’d have a recipe, I can honestly say its all mine.
I’d never seen this done anywhere else.
One of my favorite time of year is this period when there is abundance of fruits.
I love fruits and I try to include it with my daily meals as often as I can.
They are packed with high amounts of nutrients that everyone in the family can benefit from!
I love to process fruits in different ways to elevate the eating experience and also keep all family members interested.
Some of the ways I have enjoyed processing fruits include: making Sorbets, fruit salad, ice cream, smoothies, and juice!
And Of course we just eat it straight up sometimes.
For today’s recipe, I have four fruits, three of which are among my absolute favourite, i’m not a fan of cucumber at all, so i thought to include it in this recipe so that i wont keep missing out of the nutrients packed in it.

Let me know what you think if you tried this recipe.
📒 the amount of water you add will determine the resultant taste and volume of your juice.
📒If you want to skip sugar, then you may decide to skip diluting the juice with water, otherwise the taste may not be as great as you would want.
📒if you live in an area where you can’t find sweet melon, you can replace it with water melon.
📒you can use more or less amount of oranges than what I have in my own recipe, depending on the quantity of juice you want.
