This can also be served as a mid-afternoon snack. Berries and other fruit can be added instead of, or in addition to the rockmelon to make this breakfast more colourful and provide even more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups diced rockmelon (cantaloupe)
  • 5-6 Tbsp low fat yoghurt (use soy or coconut for vegans)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped pecans (other nuts can be used)
  • 1 Tbsp hulled sesame seeds

Method

  1. Cut rockmelon (cantaloupe) into bite sized pieces into a bowl.

  2. Divide rockmelon into two equal portions in two bowls.

  3. Add 2-3 tablespoons of yoghurt to each bowl.

  4. Sprinkle with chopped pecans and sesame seeds.
  5. Serve garnished with some fresh mint leaves.

Organic ingredients should be used, as they tend to have more flavour, more nutrients and less of the nasty chemical residues.

Rockmelon can be frozen (then thawed slightly) for a great summer breakfast, which is cooling and refreshing.
