Prep Time 15 minutes
Freezing time 1 hour


Your choice of melon(s):

  • Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe
  • Honeydew melon
  • White honeydew melon


  • Rinse the melons, cut them in half and remove the seeds.
  • Use a melon baller to scoop out the melon balls from the fruit. Don’t worry if they’re not all perfectly round – they will flatten slightly when you freeze them.
  • Use a baking sheet or flat platter that can fit in your freezer. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper.
  • Arrange the melon balls on the baking sheet. Make sure that the melon balls are not touching (or they will freeze together).
  • Freeze the melon balls for a few hours or until completely frozen. Remove them from the freezer and transfer them to a freezer bag. Place the bag in the freezer until ready to use.


Use the leftover parts of the melon (what's left after scooping out the melon balls) to make a smoothie, cocktails, or a cold melon soup.
