Fruit Sundaes

This week I’m posting all things that have to do with healthy food that starts with the letter S! I think this is my biggest list yet! So many amazing food choices.  Normally, you wouldn’t associate Sundae’s with healthy food, but you’ll change your mind with this one.  Thanks to reader Leila from Don’t Speak Whinese, for this clever guest post.


DontSpeakWhinese Watermelon Sundae 2If you are looking for a delicious and healthy summer dessert that doesn’t have a mountain of sugar then this is a perfect recipe. It will please even the pickiest palette and encourage more fruit consumption! Watermelon scoops replace ice cream and the rest can be assembled with so many different variations that it never gets boring. Keep your child’s favorite fruits in mind and add a little tempting topping to sweeten the deal.

Milk allergies run amok in our home so it’s always a challenge finding alternatives for the typical childhood favorites that my children cannot have. This recipe never disappoints and is always requested!
