Cantelope-Orange Ice

1/2 large cantelope melon
1 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon brown rice syrup (or 1 tablespoon raw sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla
cherries to garnish

Several hours or the night before, remove the inner seeds to the melon
and scoop out chunks of melon. Place in a freezer container and freeze.

To make the dessert, put the orange juice, vanilla, brown rice syrup in 
a blender and blend until smooth. With the blender running, add chunks
of the melon until the mixture is very thick.  Pour into sherbet glasses
and garnish each glass with a cherry, if desired.
