Melon Balls in Orange-Lavender Syrup

Looking for an easy breezy, summer style dessert for your meal or for a get together, i have something to share with you. My today's post is an excellent summer friendly dessert, which is definitely a quick dessert to prepare. Scooping melon balls may take some time but trust me its one of the quite interesting, fruity dessert to relish after a meal. This dessert can be prepared a day earlier, obviously you doesnt need to worry about to prepare these sort of desserts. I opted for an aromatic syrup to serve this melon balls. Once its summer here, you can see lavender plants shows their head in every corner of the streets or in gardens. We have planted some lavender plants in our school garden during spring season . After three months,lavender sprigs are just prefect to harvest to prepare some pot pourri (which is a mixture of dried naturally fragrant plants) or else to use in cooking or baking.

I came back home with few lavender sprigs, after preparing a small pot of pot pourri with them, i decided to prepare a dessert with those lavenders as my theme for this blogging marathon calls for single serve desserts. When its summer here, you can see couple of summer fruits in every fruit shops and i love summer here as i get my favourite melon fruits. I can finish my lunch or dinner with half of the canteloupe melon, yes i love this fruit that much. Hence i decided to go with a simple aromatc dessert with my favourite fruits. Apart from making a simple lavender sugar syrup, this dessert is very easy to prepare. No much efforts is needed, if you dont have melon baller gadeget, just cut the melon as small chunks and prepare this dessert. An excellent summer dessert to try with easily available summer fruits in your place.
