Recipe makes four servings
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
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.
