Ice Blewah to break the fast

I like simple and I am a simple person too. So, what I like to eat as iftar is something fresh, sweet, cold and of course simple and easy to make. Young coconut with vanilla syrup and ice cube, is just perfect to quench you thirst after fasting. Or you may try ice blewah with vanilla syrup and ice cube too. Well, Ramadhan is always special for me.


Iftar refers to the evening meal when Muslims break their fast during the Islamic month of Ramadhan. Iftar is done right after Maghrib (sunset) time. Traditionally, a date is the first thing to be consumed when the fast is broken.
Ice Blewah

Here, in Jakarta, we can see there are so many blewah sold in traditional market during Ramadhan. Blewah is very popular in Indonesia. Blewah has the same species with Melon, it has similar aroma and taste as Cantaloupe.

The ongoing Ramadhan foodie event Joy From Fasting to Feasting 3 is hosted by Lubna Karim, and I would like to participate in this event. For this event I'd like to make Ice Blewah as iftar. I guarantee, you'll like it. The freshness and sweet smell of Blewah always remind me of Ramadhan.

The quick and easy prep to make Ice Blewah won't take your hands full with things as if you bake something. All you need is only blewah, knife, shredded tool, water, ice and sugar.

Ice Blewah

How to :
1. Cut blewah, seeded and shredded. Set aside.
2. Dissolve sugar in hot water. Mix well.
3. Put the shredded blewah in a bowl and mix with sugar syrup. Refrigerate.
4. Serve cold and add ice cube when desired.

Have a blessing Ramadhan to all of you !
