This melon yoghurt dessert with almond brittle is perfect for summer, because it tastes refreshing and combines perfectly creamy soy yoghurt with aromatic sweet galia melon and crunchy almonds.
The melons I used for this dessert are galia melons. These belong to the so-called netted melons. Because you can recognize them by their rough netted skin. This type of melon has an aromatic sweet flesh. Ripe fruits have a yellow surface with green spots on the outside and the flesh inside is salmon-coloured, white, light green or yellowish depending on the variety.
Did you know that melons aren’t real fruits at all? Because they belong to the pumpkin family and are closely related to cucumbers.
How to tell if a melon is ripe
You can recognise ripe melons from the outside by their uniform colour, pronounced net structure and pleasant sweet, fruity scent. If the galia melon is still very smooth on the outside, has hardly any net structures or smells of nothing, this is a sign that it is not yet ripe.
In this summery melon yoghurt dessert we combine creamy soy yoghurt with sweet melon pieces and crispy almond brittle that we make ourselves with cane sugar in a pan. If you like it sweeter, you can’t sprinkle the dessert with a little agave syrup. A simple but fantastic tasting combination, refreshing and low in calories.
This dessert also tastes great with other melons such as watermelon or honeydew melon. Mango or apple also taste delicious and refreshing in combination with soy yoghurt and almond brittle. So have fun experimenting and enjoying!
