Ripe and in season cantaloupes (musk melons) are perfectly sweet and ready to eat. You are just going to love Honey Cardamom Cantaloupe Sorbet because it is the perfect way to cool down on warm summers day celebrating nature’s fruit candy.

The best part about making honey cardamom cantaloupe sorbet is that it only takes 5 minutes to make in the food processor and a few hours in the freezer and dessert is ready. This is a perfect make ahead dessert for any gathering.

Just use your fork to flake the honey cardamom cantaloupe sorbet into a little cup, ½ cantaloupe or martini glass or bowl and dessert is served. You are just going to love the texture of this sorbet as it is like delicious honey cardamom cantaloupe snowflakes on your tongue.

Our favorite part is when the snowflakes start to melt just a little bit and it is extra creamy, light and delicious.

We used coconut full fat milk instead of milk or cream to keep it dairy free but of course you could exchange with cream or milk if desired.

The addition of lemon and lemon zest really brightens this honey cardamom cantaloupe sorbet. With just a dusting of cardamom this lightly sweet cooling dessert really hits the spot. Perfect sweet ending to any meal.

Honey cardamom cantaloupe sorbet is dairy free, vegan and can be modified to be diabetic friendly by switching out the honey for a sugar substitute of choice. We like our desserts only lightly sweet so feel free to add more honey to suit your taste buds. We used Bee Free Honey made out of apples to keep this dessert vegan but you can use your sweetener of choice. Bee Free Honey tastes just like regular honey and the same consistency of honey, which we really liked. Feel free to use regular honey if you are not sticking with a vegan diet. For this recipe, using a type of honey or maple syrup works best because it does not have sugar granules. If you use a granulated sugar, you will need to first make this into a little simple syrup before adding to the Honey Cardamom Cantaloupe Sorbet.

If you are so inclined, you could freeze your chopped cantaloupe and place your coconut milk in the refrigerator so that it reduces the time needed to freeze. Summertime needs refreshing quick and easy desserts. Have you tried our Velvety Vegan Chocolate Mousse, Rainbow Fruit Yogurt Layered Ice Cream or  Matcha Banana Strawberry Ice Cream Cups

  • What is Bee Free Honee? I love the sound of this sorbet, especially with the cardamom.

    • thank you Tandy. Bee Honee is a Honey free alternatives for vegans that is made out of apples. Here is the link… However, you can exchange with whatever sweetener your little heart desires. Our cantaloupe was perfectly ripe and sweet so it only needed a touch of sweetener in this recipe.

    This looks amazing! What a great idea to serve it in the cantaloupe, too!

    • Thank you Amy! We just cut a little bit off of the cantaloupe bottom so it was flat and it is the perfect serving container.

  • This looks soooo delicious! I just bought a cantaloupe, I might just have to try it! 🙂

    • Thank you Sherri. We hope you do give it a try as super easy to prepare. Take Care

  • This looks so refreshing and delicious! I love the serving idea!

    • Thank you Katerina. If you cut off just a little bit of the bottom of the cantaloupe, it will sit nicely upright for you and then remove the seeds and place in the honey cardamom cantaloupe sorbet and you are good to go.

    Fun dish! I love no-churn frozen goodies — so easy to make. And I don’t think I’ve ever had cardamom with cantaloupe — sounds like a delightful flavor pairing!

    • We do too. We do not have an ice cream maker so the fast and easy ones are always a hit here. Thanks John!

  • OMG! I am so much loving this of honey cardamom cantaloupe sorbet. Addition of cardamom sounds great here. And love how beautifully you have served them in cantaloupe bowls. So refreshing and YUM.

    • Thank you Anu! The cantaloupe bowls are really fun and edible way to serve. We toasted and ground our own cardamom and as you know that really makes this spice pop in flavor.

  • This looks so delicious and refreshing! My mom used to serve ice cream with cantaloupe, but not with tasty cardamom!

    • Thank you Sandra. We really love the addition of cardamom to this cantaloupe sorbet. A really delicious unexpected combo.

  • What an interesting combination of flavors and textures! I’ve always wanted to make ice cream using coconut and this looks like a great recipe to start with. Thanks!
