Cantaloupe Sorbet

We are big ice cream eaters in this house, which is a bad thing when you're trying to eat better and not gain a ton of weight.
We also have had an abundance of cantaloupe, which lead me to Pinterest searching for recipes to use it when I came across sorbet.
This sorbet was delicious, light, and very refreshing!
yield: 1 quart of sorbet

1/2C water
1/2C granulated sugar
4C cubed, peeled cantaloupe
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs white wine (I used sauvignon blanc)

  1. To make simple syrup, combine sugar and water in a saucepan, and heating the mixture over med-high heat until boiling.
  2. Stir and cook until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Remove saucepan from heat and allow to cool.
  4. Add cantaloupe, wine, lemon juice, and simple syrup to a blender.
  5. Puree until mixture is smooth.
  6. Pour mixture into your ice cream maker and churn for 15-20 minutes until sorbet has formed.
  7. If you don't have an ice cream maker, pour mixture into a freezer safe container and allow to freeze for at least 4 hours.
  8. Enjoy!
