Cantaloupe is one of our favorite fruit. Cantaloupe is also known as cantaloup, mushmelon, muskmelon, cantalope, rockmelon .Cantaloupe in milkshake, juice, ice cream or even as a fruit without  any sugar tastes great.  Try this cardamom infused cantaloupe sorbet, I am sure you would love this. Difference between sherbet and sorbet take a look at this post.

3. Remove from heat. Close with the lid for 1/2 hr.
4. Strain the mixture and chill in the fridge for 1 hour before we add to the cantaloupe mixture.

If your using Icecream follow the instruction as given in the manufacture's guide.

Else Follow this
