We love serving these watermelon fries to the kids as a fun summer treat or as a healthy dessert at a BBQ (we have even had this for breakfast !). For adults, we will sometimes sprinkle a bit of cayenne powder on the fries. just a little heat goes very nicely with the cool watermelon. For the kids, we just leave the cayenne off.
This snack or healthy summer dessert doesn’t really need a recipe but here goes…
WATERMELON FRIES WITH COCONUT LIME DIP
- For the dip
- 1 cup coconut yogurt (non-dairy works fine)
- zest and juice of one lime
- a little coconut sugar (to taste.)
- Slice the watermelon 2 cm thick and then cut into 6 cm long sticks about 1 cm wide.
- sprinkle the watermelon fries with 1/2 of the lime zest & chill until ready to serve.
- Mix the yogurt, lime juice, remaining lime zest, and coconut sugar in a small bowl. Garnish with lime zest.
- Serve and enjoy.
