- 1/2 cantaloupe, seeds removed
- 1 cup fresh pineapple
- 1 cup peaches
- 1 cup Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
- 2 cups strawberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 cup pineapple juice
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- Sour cream, for garnish
- Orange rind, for garnish
Combine all the fruit: cantaloupe, pineapple, peaches, apples, strawberries in a large mixing bowl, along with the sugar and honey. Add fruit mix to the pot on the stove and add your liquid ingredients of water, pineapple, lemon and orange juice.
While the fruit mix is simmering on the stove, cut the bottom of your cantaloupe half (so as to not rock) and with your fruit baller, dig out 2 cups cantaloupe adding it to the rest of the fruit in the pot. Reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes or until fruit is soft.
Allow fruit to cool down. When ready pour half of fruit mixture into blender. Blend until smooth. Repeat with the remaining mixture and chill until ready to serve.
Spoon into bowls, garnish each serving with a dollop of sour cream and orange rind.
