    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 cups fresh raspberries (Or unsweetened frozen raspberries, defrosted)

    2. 2
      Pour through a sieve to remove seeds.
    3. 3
      Stir sugar and liqueur (if used) into puree and mix well; cover and chill.
    4. 4
      Halve cantaloupes and remove seeds; peel and cut into thin slices.

      Top melon with a scoop of sherbet and pour 2 tablespoons chilled raspberry sauce over sherbet.

      Raspberry sherbet in goblets lined with sliced cantaloupe and topped with Melba sauce would make a memorable finale for a menu featuring an egg and cheese dish.

      This was a delicious dessert. Quick and easy to make, light and refreshing. A perfect ending to any meal. I subed lime sherbert and frozen tropical yogurt for the raspberry sherbert, as I was out. They both worked well with the raspberry sauce and the sweet, juicy cantaloupe slices. Thanks so much for sharing another wonderful recipe.

      This was a great tasting dessert. I did substitute juice for the liquor. Made for 123 Hits

      My old blender died and so my sister passed on to me her old one (she recently acquired a new fancy-dancy one). I cristened it with this dish and could not have made a better choice (I did make just a quarter recipe). It turns out that curacao (the liqueur I used) does something wonderful to the flavor of raspberries. My verdict: A lovely light dessert glorifying my favorite kind of melon. P.S. I was bad and did not push the raspberry pulp through a sieve to remove the seeds--didn't bother me a bit.
