Watermelon Christmas Trees

December 24, 2013


Who says that the Silly Season is all about unhealthy (albeit delicious) food! This festive treat doesn’t take long at all, is refreshing and healthy! Plus the shape of the Christmas Trees actually makes the watermelon really easy (and fun) to eat! So indulge in this sweet treat – guilt free!

What you’ll need:

Christmas Tree Cookie Cutter
Chopping Board


Step 1

Lay the watermelon flat on its side and, using the knife, cut into 1cm thick slices


Step 2

Take the slice of watermelon and lay it flat on the surface. Place the cookie cutter over it so tat the base of the tree is on the green part of the slice. Once placed, press down firmly with both hands to slice the watermelon.

Step 3.

Gently remove the cutout from the cookie cutter and repeat until you have used up the entire watermelon. Note there will be some offcuts, why not make a delicious watermelon juice with them?


Step 4

Serve and enjoy!


I had some fun with some of my other cookie cutters, so thought I’d take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!
