I often serve some kind of fruit side dish with our dinner. I try to have variety or simply make fruit salads with whatever fruit we have on hand and is in season.
Recently as I was preparing dinner I was trying to think of what to do with the fruit we had on hand. My son is allergic to grapes and bananas. So those were out. That left honeydew.
We all enjoy honeydew plain. But I wanted to spruce it up a bit. So our honeydew became honeyed-dew.
The honeyed-dew only took about 30 seconds to prepare. It was so refreshing at dinner, and everyone liked it. My son kept sucking on the fruit like a popsicle.
You can make it in a bowl to serve to a group or put the honeydew on sucker or popsicle sticks for a cool treat kids will eat any time of day.
If you don’t have honeydew you can use a different type of melon. You could even use grapes or berries. No matter what fruit you choose this is a healthy, simple side dish or snack.
- 1 cup honeydew, cut into chunks
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt (optional)
- Place the honeydew in a bowl or on sticks.
- Drizzle with honey.
- Sprinkle with salt.
- Mix or spread over the fruit.
- Freeze the fruit for about 60 minutes.
- Stir before serving to make sure the syrup covers the fruit.
- This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, etc. depending on how many you are serving.
- The "popsicles" can stay in the freezer for an easy snack.
