Melon custard

I had this amazing mango custard a while back and I wanted to reproduce it.
Unfortunately I didn’t have any mango at home so I used honeydew melon instead.

INGREDIENTS
2 and 1/4 cups diced melon

1 and 1/2 cups coconut milk

2 tsp agar powder

1-2 packets of stevia (or 2 tsp agave)

3-4 squares of dark chocolate, shaved

DIRECTIONS
1. Blend the melon until it is liquid. Set it aside.

2. Combine the coconut milk and agar powder in a saucepan and bring to a boil on high heat stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir occasionally until the agar has dissolved.

3. Take the milk off the heat and stir in the pureed melon and sweetener.

4. Pour equal parts of the finished mixture into small sized ramekins (this recipe used 4).

5. Sprinkle shaved chocolate over each custard to garnish.

6. Chill in the fridge about 2 hours, or until set.
