¼ of whole seedless watermelon

1/3 cup favourite low fat yoghurt


  1. 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 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 snap lock plastic 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
