Sugar free Melon sorbet

This is a really easy one to do and tastes great. I did find it best eaten straight after making it as it went a bit too hard after refreezing it. That being said- my toddler was still pretty happy with it when it turned into a snowcone type dessert rather than a sorbet after a week in the freezer!

Ingredients-

One cantaloupe melon

Lemon juice

Water

Honey (optional)- you could also try using maple syrup

I forgot to take a picture of the very first step which is to cut your melon into chunks and put it in the freezer overnight. If you’ve got more room in your freezer than I do its best to separate the chunks so they don’t freeze into one big clump like mine did!

So next- separate the big clump into chunks again and pop into the food processor/ blender.

Blend until it turns into snow like texture

Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 3-4 tablespoons of water

If you’re giving this to a baby under one don’t add any honey- no honey until you’re 1! If it’s for a toddler go ahead and add a tablespoon of honey for a little extra natural sweetness. You could also try maple syrup instead.

Blend again until it turns into more of a paste. You can add a little more water if it’s not getting smooth enough.

Serve at this point if it’s not too runny or Spoon into a container and put it back into the freezer for an hour before serving to firm it up a little.


I served mine with a few frozen raspberries!
