However, you can spoon it into a baking dish or freezer container, cover  and freeze until firm.  Just a couple of hours is needed.

If you freeze it longer note that it will get very, very hard.  There is little fat in this mix to it freezes like ice.  Let it thaw a good 10 minutes before scooping.

  • 2 Cantaloupes, cut in half, seeded and the melon cut into chunks or balls. (About 4 cups) Keep the cantaloupe shells for presentation (optional)
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 2 Tbsp. Lankato monk fruit sweetener or Swerve sugar substitute
  • ¼ 1/2 Cup Skim milk


  • Put the cut melon on a plate or on a sheet pan and put in the freezer overnight.
  • Dissolve the sugar substitute in the water. Stir vigorously to incorporate.
  • Place the melon, ¼ cup milk and sugar water in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. (You may have to scrub down the mixture several times to make sure it is all well blended.) Add a little more milk it you need it to be looser and creamier. Get it to the consistency you want by adding a tablespoon of the milk at a time.
  • Serve immediately for a soft serve consistency sorbet OR put in a loaf pan or plastic container and place in the freezer for a firmer texture. Let freeze a couple of hours.
  • Scoop into bowls or for a pretty presentation, place scoops of the sorbet in cantaloupe shells and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
