If you’re looking to make your kids something spectacular this week, look no further than your nearest watermelon.
Not only will this juicy fruit feed you well at any of your three daily meals, it’s also capable of making some of the season’s tastiest snacks around.
The wonderful thing about watermelon (besides being loaded with awesome health benefits like antioxidants, Vitamins A, B and C, and lycopene) is that it can be eaten as is, or transformed into something sensational with the simplest of steps. I love to make watermelon popsicles, smoothies and skewers for the kids, and when entertaining a group of adults, the fruit quickly reshapes into easy appetizers and salads, leaving me free to chat with my guests.
Martha Stewart even went so far as to show us that we could all make a simple cake using nothing but watermelon. And when one ingredient can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner and anything in between, that is indeed a very good thing.
How are you serving watermelon this summer?
