Enjoy these Iced Orangeglo Watermelon Balls alone or in Frozen Orangeglo Watermelon Tarts.


Whether combined with frozen watermelon tarts or on their own, making watermelon balls is an easy and refreshing way to enjoy the memorable summer flavor of ‘Orangeglo’ watermelon.

1 ‘Orangeglo’ watermelon
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup mango juice
Lemon thyme

Scoop out 24 melon balls from your ‘Orangeglo’ watermelon. Combine the pineapple and mango juices. Put the melon balls in a shallow glass bowl and pour the juices over them. Set this in the refrigerator to marinate for 2 to 3 hours, then place the bowl in the freezer and let the melon balls freeze, only until they are slightly slushy. Remove from freezer and serve immediately in ice cream bowls garnished with fresh lemon thyme. Serves 4.
