A simple, tasty, healthy treat - what more could you ask for!

I couldn't resist these watermelons when I saw them in Dunnes the other day. Maybe I was so excited to see fresh food after the empty shelves of Storm Emma that I wanted to buy everything that didn't come with a list of ingredients or maybe they were just too cute!

Anyway, two of them found their way into my trolley and my kitchen. Normally, I cut a watermelon and before I can do anything with it, the kids have devoured it. With the kids on snowman building duties, I had a couple of minutes to throw together these frozen yoghurt watermelon slices. Easy peasy and a great way to get the kids eating natural yoghurt and fruit.

They got the thumbs up from the kids so that's a win in my book!

Ingredients : 1 watermelon (whatever size you can get!), 1/2 tub natural yoghurt (this is how much I used for my small watermelon - double it for a normal sized watermelon), 1 tsp. good quality vanilla essence (double for larger fruit), 2 tsp. good quality maple syrup (again double depending on size of watermelon).

Method : slice your watermelon (I cut mine in triangles) and set aside. In a separate bowl mix yoghurt, vanilla and maple syrup. Spread the yoghurt mixture on one side of the watermelon. I threw some coconut and cacao nibs on the top. Then into the freezer for a couple of hours (I did struggle with fitting them in amongst my stash of storm supplies!).

Couldn't be easier! Serve after dinner, for breakfast, after school, whenever you wish..... enjoy!
