Prep Time: 25 min.

An apple a day is what they say, so have fun with it and try these adorable melon and mango apples. You can serve these as they are or top them onto salads, cakes and fruit skewers. If you make a smaller version and stick a toothpick through, you could even top your Summer drinks with them.

What you need


1. Slice the fruit. Make sure they are the same thickness.

2. Use the round cutter to shape the mango.

3. Trim the round disc of the mango using the larger heart-shaped cookie cutter to resemble an apple.

4. Cut hearts from the melon and the center of the mango using the smaller heart-shaped cutter.

5. Fill the mango with the melon hearts.

6. Top with five sesame seeds for the core.

7. Make a small hole at the top of the apple using a toothpick.

8. Insert a basil leaf.


If you can't find a Piel de Sapo melon, you can use any melon with whiteish flesh. 

Also note you can freeze all the leftover odd pieces of fruit and use them in your next smoothie.

The cookie cutters are part of a set and are linked in my Shop.
