Melon and Lime Dessert

I ‘ve been looking for a recipe that would include melon and should be super easy to cook. Something that would only take a few minutes to prepare and would be served chilled out of the fridge! So here I am!


  • 1 glass of fresh milk
  • 300g ripe melon
  • Zest of one lime
  • 2 tsp. tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tsp. tablespoon cornflour
  • 8 ladyfinger cookies
  • 1 shot rum


  • Peel the melon and beat in a blender until you get a homogeneous velvety pulp.
  • Mix the sugar with corn flour and milk in a bowl.
  • Once thoroughly shuffled put them in a saucepan and heat.
  • Pour in the zest of lime and melon pulp.
  • Mix and heat at low temp until it begins to slightly thicken.
  • Once the cream thickens, remove from fire and allow the cream to come to room temperature.
  • Sprinkle the ladyfinger biscuits with rum, break them in half and pour them in the mixture.
  • Divide the melon cream in glasses.
  • Transfer the glasses in the refrigerator and serve cold.
