Fruit Ball Party Cups
- 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.
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.
