Watermelon Banana Split

4 WWPP Posted by 6 years ago 12 Comments

Sorry, I’ve been sitting on this idea all week trying to find time to simply post! But I won’t bore you with crazy life busy stories. :) Here’s the deal…

This past weekend after a long run (I’m training for a marathon) I wanted, I was craving, fruit. Thankfully we just went shopping so I had lots of options. :) Watermelon Banana Split

Of course I couldn’t just grab a banana. The little guy and I had a fun creating (and sharing) a fun fruit salad. Here’s what we did…

Cut the banana down the middle, lengthwise and place in bowl.

Scoop large circle pieces of watermelon using a tablespoon or ice cream scoop. Place on the bananas. Sprinkle with the blueberries and almonds.

Have fun! :)

    This is too cute! I'm going to get the stuff to make this today! I think it's great that you are teaching your child how to eat healthy and fun. Many times people think it's one or the other. Thank you for sharing! Reply

    I have seen you use the cocoa almonds before, Is there a brand you use, where do you get them? Reply

    Hello. Have you ever tried with a frozen watermelon? Just scoop out the circle pieces before putting it in the freezer. Yay! Watermelon sherbet! Sometimes, I even freeze other fruits after putting some lemon juice and chili powder over them. Excellent refreshing snack! Reply
