Cantaloupe Sorbet

Blogging Marathon #68 Week 5 Day 4
Theme: Desserts
Dish: Cantaloupe Sorbet

We are almost at the end of the month with the Cooking Carnival. Today is the last but one dish. I am posting desserts this week and this happens to be the simplest dessert to make and the shortest recipe on my blog! Actually when I read about fruit sorbets on various websites, the simplicity is what drew me towards them. So I am posting a Cantaloupe Sorbet today.

Cantaloupes are easily available in my region all year round, and they are surprisingly sweet all the time! So I made the sorbet using it. Many people refer to it as muskmelon too. And in my mother tongue Gujarati, we call it sakkarteti. If you cannot get, use any melon you like. The same can also be made from peaches. It tastes super yummy!

The recipe calls only for two ingredients; a melon and honey. Though the recipe needs some planning in terms of freezing the fruit for a few hours, it can be made in under 10 minutes. The result was great and we fell in love with the orange color of the sorbet! Do try it and yes, come back tomorrow for the last dessert in this series!


Cantaloupe 1 medium
Honey to taste
Mint Leaves 2-3


Remove the peel and slice the cantaloupe into pieces. Place them in a baking tray lined with parchment paper and freeze for 4-6 hours. You can freeze them overnight too.

After it has frozen, remove and add to a food processor. Also add a tsp of honey. The amount of honey can be changed depending on how sweet the cantaloupe is. Process to an almost smooth texture. Remove and serve immediately, topped with mint leaves. 

The leftover can be frozen in an airtight container for a day or two.
