This was tasty, and a great way to use up a large cantaloupe that needed some help. I think it would be especially tasty with 3 Tbs of midori melon liquor added, but I wanted my small kids to eat this so I didn't add any.
The perfect light summer dessert! I'm not the biggest fan of cantaloupe, but this recipe was wonderful. I added some strawberries as well to make it more to my liking. One of my favorites now.
Yummy! I didn't have lemon juice, so I used lime juice instead. It was really refreshing and was perfect in my brand new ice cream maker. Thanks!
