Start with a fresh, fragrant cantaloupe!  Your finished product will taste like the raw ingredient ;-)

Make sure the cantaloupe is semi-frozen or well chilled.  Then, blend with ice, a pinch of salt and a dash of sugar.  Make sure that the blender and serving dishes are very cold (store in the freezer for a few minutes prior to preparation) and be sure to serve promptly.

Served here with candied jasmine tea leaves (mint leaves are also a good choice).
