Take advantage of all the summer has to offer. Sweet, succulent melon together with rich milk in a frozen dessert will please even the pickiest of palates. Melon flavored ice cream uses the cantaloupe or honeydew melons available in abundance during the warm summer months. This fruit is often considered only a breakfast side dish or for salads, but even healthy melon can be a part of a decadent dessert. Use cantaloupe or honeydew melons for your ice cream, because watermelons are too watery for the recipe.

Combine the melon cubes, sugar, and half and half in the work bowl of a food processor.

Puree the mixture until smooth.

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream machine.

Freeze according to the ice cream maker manufacturer's instructions.
