  • 1 medium sized cantaloupe
  • Juice of half a lemon

  4. Pour mixture into a shallow "9x12" glass pan and set in the freezer for two hours.
  5. With a fork, chip and stir the icy mixture and return it to the freezer for two to four hours.
  6. Peel and cut mango into long, thin, attractive slices, avoiding the pit (which is shaped like a large almond).
