Just thinking about watermelon makes my mouth water. It’s one of our favorite fruits at home. We love to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or as a refreshing snack. We also love to include it in salads, aguas frescas, with chile, lemon and salt or in a fruit cocktail. I usually buy it and slice it right away so it’s ready in my fridge. That saves me some time while cooking because with just opening the fridge I can offer a quick snack for my kids. A fun and delicious way to eat watermelon is in skewers. The best part? Your kids get to help you prepare them: they can choose other fruits to combine it with or what dip to use. Here’s the recipe I use.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 small watermelon, seedless
  • 1/2 small jicama
  • 1/4 pineapple
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • Wooden brochette sticks
  • 1/2 cup bee honey
  • 1 (4 oz) natural yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon apricot jam

Directions

  • 1
    For the skewers: Peel and dice the watermelon in 3-centimeter cubes. Peel and dice the jicama in 2x3-centimeter rectangles. Peel and dice the pineapple in triangles. Place the blueberries in a dish.
  • 2
    Grab one skewer at a time and start inserting the fruits, combining them. I for one did one with watermelon and blueberries, another of watermelon and jimaca and one of watermelon and pineapple, and so on.

    For the dips: In a small glass bowl, pour the honey. In another bowl, mix the yogurt with the apricot jam. These two dips are for those who want an extra sweet kick!
