Soften gelatin in cold water. Remove seeds from cantaloupe. Scoop out pulp and place in a small saucepan. Mash with fork (there should be about 2 cups). Add softened gelatin. Stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat. Add sweetener. Chill until mixture is slightly thickened. Combine milk, ice water, lemon juice, and vanilla in a small mixing bowl.
