Who could pass up the crisp and refreshing taste of melon? It's great in fruit salad and it cools you down in the summer. If you are craving a little bit of summer try this incredibly easy snack.
What you'll need:
Melon (any kind but watermelon)
1 cup of cottage cheese
- Take the melon (my fave is cantaloupe) and cut it in half.
- Scoop out all the seeds.
- Fill the melon bowl with cottage cheese or yogurt.
- Serve as is and scoop out bite-sized spoonfuls. Or if you prefer - you can cut the cantaloupe up and serve on a plate.
Why we love it:
Melons like cantaloupe are high in vitamins A and C, and potassium. They are low in calories and easy to digest.
Cottage cheese and yogurt are great sources of calcium and protein - try using the low fat versions.
Plus, it's so easy to make and if you use the melon like a bowl, it is easy to clean up too.
