So simple and refreshing, this frozen treat is the perfect warm weather dessert. For a delicious variation, substitute your favorite seasonal fruit for the cantaloupe.

Oh my gosh- I can't believe I'm the first one to comment on this. We have it for breakfast all the time- it's awesome. My two year old devours these slushes. Mmmmm... just thinking about them makes me salivate. :)

Totally agree with everything G-mama said (except no 2 year-old). This is delicious and a real treat.

This was served at the Red Mountain Spa. It was absolutely delicious!

This was GREAT!!! We only had 5 medjool dates on hand, so that's how many we used. It was great! The kids said they LOVED it. My daugther said it tasted unhealthy. ha ha... I guess that meant it was REALLY GOOD! I can't wait to try it with peaches, I think that would be amazing. Although the cantaloupe was good too, and I believe has a higher ANDI score. It was like having dessert for breakfast.

This was ok, I might make it again but would not consider it great like other posters. If I did make it again I would recommend: blend 1/4 of the cantaloupe with the dates FIRST, to get the dates blended, THEN add the rest of the cantaloupe and the ice. I did it the way the recipe calls for and I had to blend it so long to get the dates blended in that the ice "melted" down and the whole thing tasted like lukewarm melon juice. There was no "slush" aspect to it.

Liked this a fair bit but I might try a different fruit next time such as strawberries or watermelon.

i was hesitant to try this thinking the cantalopus flavour would be too strong - but i love it! the dates make it so smooth and add a nice 'rich' flavour to it

This is deliciously refreshing. I csn't believe how simple it is to make and how good it is.

I have to agree with Laurared. It took me forever to blend it so that the dates
would be incorporated in the slush. As for the taste, the flavor was too weak!
Too long to make but might try it with the Canary melon I have on hand.

This is so refreshing! The quality flavor of a ripe cantaloupe is definitely going to contribute to the success in this recipe. I find Tuscan cantaloupes have the best flavor! Worth the extra cost over regular cantaloupe.

This drink is delicious, expecially on a hot summer day.

The advice to blend the dates with some of the cantaloupe is good.  I also chop the dates to reduce blending time.  For me, 2 medjool dates are sufficient for sweetness.

it sounds delicious but fruit especially dried raises  my blood sugar. I can't see how this is for diabetes.

An alternative to dates is the inside of thoroughy baked sweet potato.  It adds sweetness and makes smothies and ice creams extra creamy.  The potatos should be baked until the juice is dripping out.  Mmmmm

April5...Since I'm allergic to dates and bananas your suggestion about using a sweet potato is so helpful.  I use sweet potatoes in many Dr. Fuhrman sauces and dishes and that never crossed my mind!  Thanks!
