Watermelon Christmas Trees, a healthy and fun Christmas themed treat.
I saw these Watermelon Christmas Trees all over the internet last year but never actually got around to making them. This year, as we are in the sunshine, I thought they would be a perfect Christmas themed snack to make with Finn. It was a recipe leaflet in Woolworths (Australian supermarket) that actually reminded me of them and I loved how they added yoghurt for the tree decoration.
I sliced the watermelon and carved the rind to make the tree stump but left the decoration to Finn. The food blogger in me wanted to step in and make them look pretty but the teacher in me stood back and let Finn decorate them himself. We used natural greek yoghurt and some dried cranberries.
They are super simple to make and a good way to get kids into the kitchen and enjoying healthy food.
