    Recipe Introduction

    6 Servings; 1 Point per serving

    List of Ingredients

    - 3-1/3 cups fresh or frozen (thawed and undrained)
    raspberries or blackberries
    - 1-1/2 tablespoons orange juice
    - 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
    - Sugar substitute equal to 3 tablespoons sugar
    - 1/2 cantaloupe melon
    - 1/2 honeydew melon


    Place 2 cups of the berries and all of the orange juice
    and lemon juice in a blender or food processor and process
    until smooth. Pour the mixture into a wire strainer and use
    the back of a spoon to push the mixture through the strainer
    and into a bowl. Discard the seeds. Stir the sugar substitute
    into the berry puree and set the sauce aside.

    Remove the seeds and rind from the melons. Cut each melon piece
    into 3 long wedges and then cut each wedge in half crosswise to
    make a total of 12 shorter wedges. Using a sharp knife, slice
    each melon wedge lengthwise toward the point without cutting
    completely to the end and open each wedge into fan shape.

    Place 2 tablespoons of the sauce on each of 6 dessert plates.
    Top the sauce on each plate with a cantaloupe and honeydew fan and
    garnish with some of the remaining fresh berries. Serve immediately.
