Cantaloupe Ice Cream (Eggless)

Summers are the best time to have chilled and cold smoothies,ice creams,popsicles,granitas and much more.How about a cantaloupe(musk melon) ice cream? This is one fruit which my kids don't like very much and so I always find a way to sneak in this fruit.And its this search that led me to end up making this smooth and delicious ice cream.They really liked the orange color ice cream.Try making it this summer and enjoy !!!

diced cantaloupe 3 cups
sugar 1 cup
condensed milk 3tbsp
heavy whipping cream 1 cup
half n half 2 cups
ginger powder 1/2tsp
lemon juice 2 tbsp
vanilla extract 1tsp

-Wash and cut,remove the core and peel the hard skin.Dice the cantaloupe in cubes and blend it in a blender with 1 cup half n half and condensed milk.Add in the sugar and blend again.
-Whip the whipped cream(very cold) until soft peaks in a cold bowl,add the pinch of salt beat again till stiff peaks.
-Mix the remaining half n half,blended cantaloupe,powdered ginger,lemon juice,vanilla extract.
-Gently mix the whipped cream to the cantaloupe mix.then freeze in a air tight container for 20 minutes.
(If u have an ice cream maker,then proceed according to manufacturer instructions)
-Else,remove from the freezer,whisk it again using a whisker and then freeze again,repeat the same procedure till the time you no longer can whisk.
-Freeze again overnight.Blend in a blender to crush the ice,smooth it in a air tight container.
-Refreeze and serve chilled !!!

Serves 5 cups ice cream

* You can use whipped cream instead of whipping cream.If you are using whipped cream,adjust you sugar as per the sugar level in whipped cream.
* Omit ginger powder if you don't like the flavor.

I love your ice cream. I imagine the flavor and the savour. I don't know what "half n half" means.
Here in Spain we have very good melons. They are completly different to cantaloup.
Try to make jam with melon. I've got a fex in my site.

@Marisa G Half n half is nothing but equal parts of light cream and milk.It has fat content lower than that of heavy cream.
