Watermelon Banana Split
A healthy twist to an old favorite - serves four
- 2 bananas
- 1 medium watermelon
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 cup diced fresh pineapple
- 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
- 1/4 cup caramel fruit dip
- 1/4 cup honey roasted almonds
Peel bananas and cut in half lengthwise then cut each piece in half. For each serving, lay 2 banana pieces against sides of shallow dish. Using an ice cream scooper, place three watermelon "scoops" in between each banana in each dish. Remove seeds if necessary. Top each watermelon "scoop" with a different fruit topping. Drizzle caramel fruit dip over all. Sprinkle with almonds.
Easy, fast, and healthy, too!
- 1-inch cubes of seedless watermelon
- Smoked turkey breast
- Cheddar cheese
- Skewers, coffee stirrers or beverage straws
Cut watermelon, turkey and cheese in cubes and string on skewers, stirrers or straws. Enjoy!
Kids love to dip! (The original recipe's dip was made out of sour cream, vanilla extract and sugar. But flavored yogurt sounds so much easier, don't you think?)
- 8 ounces vanilla, fruit or berry flavored yogurt
Slice watermelon into sticks or small wedges. Place yogurt in a bowl as a dip for the watermelon. Dip away!
