Fruit Ball Party Cups

Serves 6-8

 

Ingredients

– 1 cantaloupe melon

– 1 papaya

– 3 dragon fruit

– 1 small seedless watermelon

– 16 shiso leaves (these are available at most Japanese markets or on Amazon)

– 4 key limes

– 1 bunch fresh mint

 

6-8 oz glasses work best… should fit approx. 8-10 balls.

 

Directions

Cut melons, dragon fruit, and papaya in half, scoop out the seeds on the papaya and cantaloup.

Use a melon baller to create balls with the melons, dragon fruit and papaya.  Place on a baking sheet so fruit doesn’t get smushed. If you are not serving these cups in near future, place baking sheet in fridge when done balling.

 

When ready to serve, arrange 2 shiso leaves along the side of your small glass. Place balls to your liking, taking some of each type, in the cup.  Add a sprig of mint and 1/2 a key lime to the top edge. Serve immediately.  Encourage your guests to squeeze the lime over their fruit before eating.
