I love to have something festive when it's a Holiday and when summer is almost here this will be the first thought in mind on a hot day to be refreshing. In the other half I scoop it out and fill it with my favorite flavor of jello. This is all different fruit shapes.
Here's all you need:
1 seedless small mini watermelon sliced in half and scooped out with a melon ball scooper to make small round balls
1 cantaloupe or honeydew, use a star small appetizer sized cookie cutter to make stars
Pineapple sliced cut into cubes or appetizer sized cookie cutter shapes
Strawberries when cutting the stems off I then take a knife and zig zag the edge to make it look like a flower
Bing Cherries pits removed
Appetizer small cutters: hearts, stars, leaf shapes, small paring knife, pit remover, diamond shaped
Other fruit suggestions: green grapes, red grapes, blue grapes, sliced plums, sliced peaches, pear slices, firm bananas soaked in lemon juiced and sliced, sliced apples soaked in lemon juice, mandarin oranges, raspberries, blackberries
Layer the hollowed out melon with different colors to make your melon festive looking. All natural nothing else is need.
Note for the other half of the melon:
I use the melon water as the cold water for making jello to the package instructions and filling the other half. The other half only requires 1 package. Refrigerate. Serve with whip cream.
