Scoop frozen yogurt into ½ cup balls and place in single layer in freezer. Place pepitas in food processor, coffee grinder or blender and pulverize to soft powder. Add next 5 ingredients (cinnamon through mint leaves) to pepitas and set aside.
In small saucepan, dissolve honey in melon juice over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, add melon and mint and cook about 2 minutes. Let cool slightly. Place nut mixture in small bowl. Roll frozen yogurt ball until lightly coated. Repeat with remaining frozen yogurt balls.
Place each ball in small bowl and top with 2T warm citrus compote and serve immediately.
