Pip Watermelon hearts

Here’s a healthy treat for Valentine’s Day: heart-shaped watermelon slices. Nutritionist Pip Fleming shares this simple but love-ly idea and tell us what’s so good about this deliciously juicy fruit:

Despite popular belief that watermelon is made up of only water and sugar, watermelon is actually considered a nutrient-dense food, which provides a variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for a low number of calories. In particular, watermelon is rich in vitamin C and fibre and makes a perfect attractive hydrating snack for kids.

To make these pretty Valentine hearts:

  • Slice one watermelon into 2-inch slices
  • Use any heart-shaped cutter to cut out the shapes from these slices
  • I use a rolling pin to help bash the cutter through the thicker skin
  • Arrange and enjoy!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
