You guys! The end of summer is here and you know what that means.... CHEAP WATERMELONS!!! All of our local grocery stores are selling giant watermelons for $3 or less right now so it's the perfect time to indulge in a deliciously healthy end-of-summer treat or chop up and freeze these nutrient-rich refreshing beauties to enjoy throughout the fall and winter months!
Here are some of our favorite watermelon recipes including one of our very own from last summer!
This recipe is such a delicious and flavorful take on traditional pico de gallo! It's perfect for Labor Day, potlucks, tailgating or for a cozy movie night at home. I'm a total wimp when it comes to spice though, so be sure to adjust the jalapeño to your liking!
This one is our recipe and an easy one for the kiddos to make! Aria loves coconut milk and the fresh lime really makes this smoothie so refreshing!
This is another really fun and easy one for the kiddos! Just slice up some watermelon and let them add their own healthy toppings. You can even add some light whipped cream as a sauce!
This easy 4-ingredient salad is loaded with nutrients and perfect for packing lunches on-the-go! It's also a great way to use fresh basil from the garden!
One of Aria's favorite things to do is make homemade lemonade and this recipe adds a fun twist!
I've been seeing these quite a bit lately - a healthy alternative to traditional birthday cake and so much fun to make! These are so perfect for 1st birthday parties and Labor Day cookouts! Gluten free, low carb and so pretty!
I love combining watermelon with citrus and this ceviche is so good! Perfect for a light low-carb appetizer or dinner!
The perfect mid-week pick me up! Made with fresh watermelon juice, you can't go wrong with this one.
I would have never thought of combining watermelon with balsamic and mozzarella but it totally works! Definitely a fun take on the traditional caprese salad!
And lastly, this is another great one for the grown-ups! It's the end of cherry season too and this combination is divine!
So run run run, grab as many cheap watermelons as you can before the season ends! If you just want to stock up and freeze some to enjoy later on, here is the perfect step-by-step guide on how to freeze watermelon! And speaking of end-of-summer sales, now is also the perfect time to stock up on some fun watermelon prints for next summer too!
Happy End of Summer!
