Galia Melon Red Currant Bowl

© 2020 |

The Galia melon looks like a cantaloupe on the outside and a honeydew on the inside. They taste light, smooth and sweet. The Galia melon can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. Great in salads, breakfast, and main dishes. This fruit bowl is not only easy, but it's fun to put it together, too and perfect for breakfast, a snack or as a dessert.

  • 4 tbsp Coconut flakes, unsweetened
  • 1 Galia melon
  • 100 g Mascarpone
  • 1/2 Lime, juiced
  • 100 g Red currants
  • Lemon thyme
  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add in coconut flakes and shake in the skillet until lightly toasted and aromatic.
  2. Cut the melon into half. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds. To make perfect melon balls, press down firmly so the melon baller digs into the flesh, then twist to make the ball.
  3. Carefully scrape the rest of the melon flesh with a spoon, being careful not to damage the shell. Blend the melon flesh, mascarpone and lime juice together until smooth using an immersion blender.
  4. Return the mixture into the prepared shells. Add in melon balls, red currants and sprinkle some toasted coconut flakes over. Garsnish with lemon thyme. Enjoy! | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

I've never been able to find currants here and every time I see them used in a recipe I get so jealous! This bowl is no exception, because it's absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!! I mean, it's almost too pretty to eat - not that it would stop me, because it also looks delicious! ;) I'm going to have to make this sans the currants, but I definitely want to try it! YUMMY!

That is the best fruit salad I have seen. Another melon to try. How luxurious with the red currant and mascarpone. I actually used my melon baller yesterday, it was getting dusty.

I love Galia melon and I have some red currants growing in my garden. Good timing for this recipe and I loved how you have used toasted coconut flakes in this dessert. Perfect.
