Recipe makes four servings

Ingredients:

2 cups cold watermelon formed into 4 large balls*

½ cup low-fat vanilla yogurt

1 cup chilled fresh fruit such as blueberries, chopped strawberries or peaches

2 tablespoons toasted almonds

Directions:

1. Wash melon well in cool, running, drinkable water before cutting. To form watermelon balls cut melon using an ice cream scoop or make several smaller balls using a cookie dough scoop or melon baller.

2. For each serving put 1 watermelon ball in a sundae glass or small bowl.

3. Stir yogurt until smooth, spoon 2 tablespoons over each watermelon ball.

4. Sprinkle each serving with ¼ cup fresh fruit and ½ tablespoon nuts.

Melons provide a good source of potassium and vitamin C. Like many other fruits, they are also fat and cholesterol free, high in water content, and are relatively low in calories. Vitamin C helps to support the immune system, and acts as an anti-oxidant.

A few quick serving ideas:

Add some sparkling water to fresh squeezed cantaloupe juice for a delightfully refreshing drink in the warm months of the year.
