The natural sweetness of the cantaloupe pairs perfectly with the honey, creating a balanced flavor that’s not overly sugary.

This cantaloupe sherbet is also incredibly easy to make, requiring just a few minutes of blending. Heinen’s fresh-cut cantaloupe saves so much prep time, eliminating the hassle of carving up a melon yourself!

Simple Cantaloupe Sherbet


  • 4 cups Heinen’s fresh-cut cantaloupe chunks, frozen overnight
  • 7 oz. sweetened condensed milk (half a 14oz can)
  • 1 Tbsp. Heinen’s honey
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice


  1. Place the frozen cantaloupe and sweetened condensed milk into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until it is crumbly. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor as needed.
  2. Add the honey and lemon juice and continue to pulse until the mixture reaches a creamy consistency.
  3. For a soft serve consistency, serve immediately.
  4. For a more scoopable sherbet, transfer the mixture to a lined loaf pan and freeze for 4 hours or overnight or until solid. Scoop and serve!
