  • ½ cup of H2O
  • ½ peeled seeded cantaloupe (chopped)


Pour the measured amount of honey and water into a saucepan. Ensuring to stir, whilst dissolving the combined mixture over medium heat until it creates a simple syrup. Transfer this part of the potion into a small bunt-sized glass dish and chill until cold; which can take upwards of 2 hours.

 Take a moment to puree the cantaloupe pieces in a blender, until its velvety smooth. Be certain to combine the simple syrup potion into the glass dish. Mix well, with a whisk and then freeze.

And voilà…

After having read several inspiring chapters about noteworthy likeminded women, I began drifting into ideas about what I might prepare for my evening meal.
