Benedict Watermelon

Don't be fooled by the name. Benedict Watermelon is a refreshing watermelon and yogurt salad combo that looks like a classic Eggs Benedict. Maybe serve it on the side for an eye-catching fruit salad to go with any of your breakfast favorites.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cup low-fat granola
  • 1/3 cup honey, at room temperature
  • 4 (3-inch round and 3/4-inch thick) circles of seedless watermelon
  • 4 (1/2-inch-thick) slices of peeled kiwi fruit
  • 1 cup low- or non-fat creamy lemon yogurt
  • 2 purple grapes, sliced in half and seeded, for garnish

What to Do

  1. Mix granola with honey by drizzling honey evenly over granola as you stir.
  2. On a serving plate, make 3-inch circles of granola in even thickness, dividing the granola/honey mixture evenly among the servings. Top each granola circle with a watermelon slice and place a slice of kiwi on each watermelon circle. Spoon yogurt over kiwi and watermelon as though it were hollandaise sauce on Eggs Benedict. Top each Watermelon Benedict with a grape half, skin-side up as a garnish reminiscent of the olive slice traditionally found on Eggs Benedict.

This would be a great thing to serve as a light and healthy dessert after a summer meal out on the patio, and if you wanted to, you could even mix it up and throw a grilled fresh pineapple ring layer in there! This would definitely be appealing to the kids, and much healthier than a bowl of sugary cereal!

I never would have thought to make such an interesting combo as a meal but I suppose it would be worth it to try it at least once!
