Cantaloupe Mint Sorbet (Gluten-free and Vegan)

There is something about summertime and it’s fresh vibrant fruit that just makes me school-girl giddy!! Sitting in the sun, enjoying your favorite fruit, juice running down your face and your arms, that’s when you know it’s really summer!

We’ve been fortunate that for a few weeks now we’ve been getting some of the freshest, sweetest fruit in our weekly CSA box. Peaches, nectarines, watermelons, cantaloupes and so much more. I decided this year that rather than just cutting up the fruit and stuffing it into our faces, that I would get creative with some of it. Treat it like I do all of the many veggies we get.

I was dreaming up frozen summery desserts when I realized that I hadn’t pulled my ice cream maker out once since we moved to California last year. That feels like a MAJOR sin, considering I basically live in perpetual summer, here in Southern California. In discovering my terrible neglect of my ice cream maker, I also realized that I had never made a sorbet! Sacrilege isn’t it?

What better time than the present to rectify all of these situations and what better way than with this beautifully bright minty cantaloupe sorbet? This frozen delight will make your taste buds bust out into and dance, likely something in the way of a top 40 poppy summer hit, like I dunno Katy Perry or Kesha or something stupidly epic that makes you wish you were on your way to the beach. No? Just me?

Anyway, the sorbet is refreshing and light and totally full of beautiful summertime flavor. Oh and the best part about this sorbet is, there are no worries if you don’t have an ice cream maker, there are two very simple options at the end of the recipe for making it without.

OK, so now I have to know, what music gets you all pumped up for summer?

Yeah, this needs to happen here. And soon. Love the mint in this and we basically live on cantaloupe and melons all summer long.

Could this also be made into ice-pops? If so, can the vodka be omitted so it’s kid friendly? Thanks!
