Cantaloupe Sorbet

A couple of summers ago I experimented making many different kinds of homemade ice cream and sorbets with my ice cream maker. This Cantaloupe Sorbet is one of the recipes I made and guess what? It is very EASY to make and is refreshing and DELICIOUS!Cantaloupe Sorbet / The Grateful Girl Cooks! Easy to prepare and perfect for a hot summer's night!

I began searching for fruit sorbet recipes online and found this simple one for Cantaloupe Sorbet – I thought that it sounded a bit unusual and a perfect candidate for my Summer Ice Cream Experiment (the experiment where I made as many different homemade ice cream recipes I could without gaining an ounce…ha ha!)
I mixed up the ingredients (super easy), refrigerated the mixture for about 6 hours (super easy-duh), hauled out my trusty ice cream maker that evening and voila…Cantaloupe Sorbet! YUM YUM YUM! So refreshing and delicious!
(TIP: Make sure you get a wonderfully RIPE cantaloupe for best flavor!)
