  • ice cream maker
  • blender


  • 1 cup milk raw; For GAPS Diet: use coconut milk (For a Milk-free version of this recipe, see the Notes variation below.)
  • 1 cup heavy cream or probiotic sour cream for GAPS
  • 1/2 cup cantaloupe fresh, chopped small to measure
  • 1/3 cup honey (For Keto, use a liquid low carb sweetener like allulose.)
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract or vodka (optional, but for best texture)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (You may use up to 1/2 teaspoon sea salt if you love the flavor it adds. I prefer to use 1/2 teaspoon, as long as it's a good quality sea salt, not table salt.)


  • Combine all ingredients in blender, except the cream, and purée for about 40 seconds, until completely smooth and the honey has fully dissolved. Add the cream and blend again just briefly, until it's evenly incorporated.
  • Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Serve!


Heavy cream variation (milk-free)

  • 1-3/4 cup cream (or sour cream for GAPS)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cantaloupe
  • 1/3 cup liquid sweetener of choice
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla or vodka (optional, but for best texture)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (I prefer 1/2 teaspoon, as long as it's good quality sea salt, not table salt.)
  1. Blend water, cantaloupe, liquid sweetener, vanilla and sea salt for about 30 seconds on medium speed.
  2. Stir in cream.
  3. Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
If you wish, you can measure the cantaloupe by adding chopped pieces to the 1/2 cup line of a clear measuring dish, then adding the water to the 1-1/4 cup line.
