Melon Frozen Yogurt With Strawberry Sauce

My mom has an ice cream maker. She got it as a door prize from an event many years ago. But she's never used it.

I've always planned of making use of it someday, but only yesterday I finally made it.

It was when I found a half of melon in the fridge, I thought of the ice cream maker and a melon frozen yogurt recipe that I've read.

And it would look prettier if you use ramekin instead of that aluminium foil cup like I used.
