Watermelon Bowl With Kiwi, Coconut & Lime
This post was written from my cool, air-conditioned apartment on what must have been one of the hottest New York days of the year (seriously, I thought I was going to melt when I felt the air radiate out of a subway station – I can’t even imagine how bad it must have been underground). The second I stepped foot outside, my body and mind were instantly craving the most refreshing fruit I could think of: watermelon. At 92% water, eating this juicy fruit is a wonderful way to stay hydrated and cool on those hot summer days. Not only is it super hydrating, but it’s a great source of vitamin A, B6, C, potassium, and the antioxidant lycopene (which gives it that reddish color) as well.
I kept this watermelon bowl recipe super simple and enjoyed it as a quick snack. Feel free to throw in any fruit you have on hand – you can even just slice open the melon, squeeze some lime, and dig in with a spoon the next time you’re craving a thirst-quenching treat!
Get the Recipe: Watermelon With Kimi, Coconut & Lime
- 1/2 mini watermelon
- 1 kiwi
- 1 tsp coconut flakes
- juice from 1/2 lime
- Slice one mini watermelon in half. Wrap and save the other half in the fridge - or make another serving for someone else!
- To make watermelon balls - use a melon baller or a teaspoon to scoop and swirl melon into ball shape. Place melon balls into a small bowl. Once entire melon is scooped out, dump balls back into the empty rind. (Optional)
- Cut up kiwi or fruit of choice and add to the bowl. Sprinkle coconut flakes and add the juice from one lime.
- Grab a spoon, dig in, and feel instantly refreshed!
