We made this last night and had some for dessert at lunch today.  It
is excellent!!

1 medium cantaloupe or other melon, seeded
1 cup simple syrup (recipe follows)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
fresh berries for garnish

Cut the ripe cantaloupe fresh into chunks and puree them in a food 
processor to measure about 3 cups.  Stir in the syrup and lemon
juice.  Taste carefully.  If the melon is not fully ripe, you may
want to add a little more syrup.  Cover and freeze the fruit puree
in ice cube trays [we needed 2.5 trays worth].

When frozen, place several cubes at a time into a food processor and
puree until smooth.  Process as many cubes as you want and enjoy!
[One tray's worth of cubes was about 2 servings].

Simple Syrup

2/3 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Put the water and sugar in a pot and bring to a boil.  Lower the
heat, cover and cook at a gentle boil for 4 to 5 minutes.  Make
sure the sugar is completely dissolved.  Add the lemon juice and
let cool.  Use in above recipe.  Makes about 1 cup.
