I had this the first time when I was 14 years old, on a trip to Italy. I couldnt get enough of it. I use a kenwood ice cream machine, the one you have to freeze 24 hours beforehand.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 500 g melon (cantaloupe, peeled and chopped)
  • 100 ml soy cream (or single cream)
  • 1 egg white (whisked to firm peaks)
  • 60 g sugar


  1. Put the chopped melon in the freezer for a couple of hours. This helps the ice cream machine along.
  2. Blend the melon with the sugar until very smooth and frothy.
  3. Add the cream and blend further.
  4. Pour the melon mixture into the ice cream machine until it has the consistency of soft ice cream. With the machine still going, add in the whisked whites . These will become incorporated into the ice cream making it softer.
  5. I have made this ice cream without the egg white sucsessfully.
