This tropical mixture of creamy coconut milk spiked with lime juice and sweet melon makes for a marvelous summer dessert. Try it with your favorite melon if you cannot get the very sweet casaba melon in your area. The simple sauce works well with all melons.

This sounded very tasty to me, I love fruit! But, next I make this I will NOT add the lime juice because it curdled the coconut milk.

This was delicious! You definitely need to allow it to chill for a few hours for best flavor.
