Watermelon Hearts

 Watermelon hearts. I mean, whatever next? Why can’t I just eat watermelon in a wedge like a normal human? Well, I could. But this is so much more fun šŸ™‚

I don’t buy watermelons that often here in Ireland because they’re just never as succulent and delicious as watermelons in actual tropical countries, as opposed to a tiny, rainy, northern European country. But I spotted watermelons for sale in the gorgeous organic fruit ‘n’ veg store near my house, so thought I’d give it a go. And I’d obviously had hearts on the brain because my heart-shaped cookie cutter was just begging to be used. So what’s a girl to do? Obviously, I had to revert back to my five year-old self and make hearts out of watermelon slices and strawberries.

Kids will love this fun idea too, and it’s a great way to encourage them to eat fruit. Watermelon is incredibly alkalising, hydrating and rich in a carotenoid phytonutrient called lycopene, which is particularly important for our heart health. How appropriate! <3
