Not only is this a sweet, healthy, colorful dessert filled with
summer fruits, but we get a lots of variety while fulfilling our
fruit for the day requirement. Just try to stick to a cup per person
to make one serving! Makes approx. 4 servings.
- 1/2 fresh small watermelon with watermelon meat scooped out
- 2 cups scooped watermelon using a melon ball scoop
- 1 cup fresh pineapple cubed (I grill pre making this recipe)
- 1 large banana sliced
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 cup strawberries quartered
- 1/2 mango scooped with a melon ball
- 1 nectarine peeled and scooped with a melon ball
- 2 kiwi's thinly sliced
- 1 cup red grapes
- 1/2 cup favorite juice such as mine orange/mango
Fill all cut fruit into watermelon shell. Pour juice and mix. Water
content of the fruit will add more juice. Cover and chill. Remove
from fridge 1/2 hour before serving. I used to add 3 scoops of 3
different flavors sherbet on top: Lemon, strawberry, and mango.

Grilling fruit does not form carcinogenic compounds as does
meats. Grilled fruit is sweet and healthy, so make it all week
long for a healthy dessert! Summertime is a great time to start
grilling vegetables and fruits and don't forget to follow my:

Meatless Monday is a flourishing, international movement that benefits
human health, animal welfare and the environment. The movement was
started in 2003 by The Monday Campaigns and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg
School of Public Health to promote cutting out meat one day a week
for our health and the health of the planet.
I say, let's get creative with more plant based foods for our health,
our environment, animals, and our earth sustainability.And Look
better, leaner and younger to boot!
