Melon and Watermelon light dessert

With so much fruit available at this time of year let's make the most of it!

You can be quite creative and make gorgeous desserts: from colourful fruit tarts, to delicious crumbles to ice creams and more.

Today, inspired by an Italian magazine I made this melon and watermelon dessert. A little liquor will give a kick to it but of course, needless to say, just leave it out if you are serving it to children.

You can use a melon baller to make pretty balls or if you don't have one just cut the fruit into cubes. It will look good anyway.

  • Prep Time : 20 minutes


Cut the fruit and remove the seeds. Scoop the melon and the watermelon making little balls. Put the balls in a bowl

Squeeze the juice of an orange and a lemon and add 3 tbsp of liquor of your choice

Chop some of the pistachios with a knife. Leave a few whole for decoration


Put the fruit into two small glasses, sprinkle some coconut flakes and the chopped pistachios over them. Then put the whole pistachios over the fruit too

    I love just about anything with melon – it’s impossible to beat a sweet, ripe melon! I love the addition of a little liquor and pistachios – how tasty!
