CarbsPerServing:11.7

Prep Time:10 minutes

Effort:Easy

Ingredients:

One ripe cantaloupe

One cup of water

8 packets of Splenda

4 sprigs fresh mint

Juice of 1/2 a lime

1 tsp. fresh lime zest

4 Tbl. heavy cream

How to Prepare:

Add the water, splenda, mint leaves (reserving a few for garnish) lime juice and lime zest in a small saucepan and boil for ten minutes until syrupy. While it is reducing, seed the cantaloupe and scoop the flesh into a blender. Pour the syrup over the cantaloupe through a sieve to remove the mint leaves and lime zest. Pulse a few times to blend and then puree for a few seconds. Skim the foam off the top and then place in the refrigerator until well chilled, at least two hours. Serve in chilled bowls with a few mint leaves and a swirl of heavy cream for garnish.
