Watermelon Christmas Trees + FREE Recipe eBook


And just like that, it’s Christmas again. If you’re anything like me it snuck up on you and your scrambling to shop, wrap and decorate in the final weeks. This year I am trying to take the time to enjoy a few truly precious moments with the kids so it’s less about the rush and more about the warm and fuzzies.

Over at One Handed Cooks one of our favourite ways to savour the sweet stuff at this time of year is to make Christmas goodies that are all about the festive season with a healthy little twist. These watermelon Christmas trees are a great example. They look fabulous on the plate, the kids will be overcome with excitement and they are guaranteed to be eaten.


  • 1/4 of a whole seedless watermelon
  • 1/3 cup of your child’s favourite yoghurt

    It’s so easy to turn a slice of watermelon into a Christmas tree

    Cut the watermelon into slices, and then cut each slice in half.

  2. To make the base of the Christmas tree, slice the watermelon rind into thirds and then trim off the pieces from either side so you are left with one ‘tree trunk’ in the middle.
  3. Place your Christmas trees on a lined baking tray that will fit in the freezer.
  4. Add yoghurt to a piping bag and decorate your trees. If you don’t have a piping bag simply fill a snaplock bag with yoghurt and cut a very small piece from the corner.
  5. Place tray in the freezer and allow the yoghurt to freeze for 1-2 hours.
