Whether it’s for 4th of July or another summer celebration, this easy desserts takes advantage of in-season fruit in a fun and festive way.

To make these, you’ll need:
-A whole watermelon
-Blueberries
-Metal or wooden skewers
-Star-shaped cookie cutters
-Greek yogurt

Get started by cutting your watermelon into 1/2″ rings, then use your cookie cutters to make your watermelon stars.

After you have all of your watermelon ready, alternate between adding watermelon and blueberries to your skewers until they’re filled.

For our dip we used plain Greek yogurt to pair with the sweetness of the watermelon. (Greek yogurt is higher in protein than traditional yogurt, which helps you feel full longer.) For added sweetness, you can add a teaspoon of honey and a couple shakes of cinnamon.

You’re ready to go! Plate your skewers and garnish with mint.
