Lovely sorbet. I don't have an ice cream machine, so followed the instructions up to then, then froze in a covered container until solid. I then scooped it out, blended and re-froze it to solid ...

This sounded really weird, but I wanted to make my husband some sorbet- and I happen to have these ingredients in the house, it turned out really yummy! Totally unexpected because the flavors so...

We LOVED this. Be sure to add some lime zest!

I added a little coconut cream to this. It tasted like the melon daiquiris I had on my honeymoon in Antigua! Mmmmm!

It's freezing now, but the flavor before I even put it in the machine was fantastic!

I didn't have fresh lime so I used container lime and omitted the lime peel. Also, I threw in a couple handfuls of ice in the blender.

EXCELLENT flavor! The honeydew really comes through and tastes wonderful mixed with the lime. It has the taste of summer! A definite 5 star recipe! Thank you for sharing.

This is SO good!! I was looking for a recipe to use an overripe honeydew and I'm so glad I used this one. It is so refreshing and delicious! This will be a regular in our house!!
