About The Recipe

I know I’ve said this before, but I’m saying it again. The weather this summer has been HOT! Like, most days we don’t even want to turn on the oven to bake, let alone stand in the kitchen to make things while said oven and stove are on.

So, even amidst all the ice creams we’ve been making, we wanted to take a break and keep it chill!

Growing up, one of my favorite things was watermelon. Still to this day one of my favorite summertime treats! Though, I have never been fond of anything other than watermelon. Which, my brother and mom both detest. They adore any and all melons.

So, we tend to try and keep them on hand during the summer. I don’t mind cantaloupes and honeydews, but my personal favorite will forever be watermelon. We each, essentially, get a small melon to ourselves.

Which is how we came up with the idea for these skewers! My mom and I had just bought some melons a few days ago.

Hot weather + not wanting to turn on oven = melon skewers!

Honestly, I am so glad that these skewers are a thing. They SO simple to make, so simple, and really fun to make! My mom told me she used to make melon balls all the time when she was catering, but I hadn’t done it since. Trying to get the technique down was a bit messy, but a lot of fun!

Because, I mean, whatever piece of melon that didn’t ball perfectly, we got to eat. A total win-win.

So, if you are looking for a fun treat that you can make with friends and family, you NEED to make these delicious melon skewers!

Can I Store These Melon Skewers?

We found that these skewers are best eaten the day they’re made! You can store them in the fridge in an airtight container overnight, but they definitely won’t be as good as they were the previous day.

Variations

  • Don’t like a certain melon? Don’t use it! These skewers are totally customizable and can actually just be made with one melon, if preferred.
  • Want to add cheese? Mozzarella or feta make a wonderful addition to these skewers!
  • Basil can be used in the drizzle instead of mint,
  • Any other fruit or even vegetable can be added to these skewers. We love adding cucumbers, tomatoes, or even fresh summer berries!
  • Feel free to skip the skewers and make this into a delicious summer salad.
