Cantaloupe Sherbet

Cantaloupe Sherbet is an amazing dessert that is absolutely perfect for summer! Summer is technically over at my house since my kids went back to school, but the weather is still over 100 degrees, we are still going in the pool, and we still want some refreshing and yummy treats to beat the heat!!! My family loves cantaloupe, so turning it into a sweet sherbet was a great idea! My parents were here for our first week back to school, so it was awesome to enjoy some tasty Cantaloupe Sherbet by the pool after dinner!

    Hi Ladies!

    Ok, this looks so refreshing!
    I LOVE cantaloupe, so I’m absolutely going to try this!
    Think I could make this sherbet using a honeydew melon too?
    Thanks for sharing!
