Red White & Blue Watermelon Sundaes

Here’s a healthy and delicious last-minute Fourth of July dessert idea – refreshing “sundaes” made with watermelon balls and blueberries. Assemble them right before serving and top with a dollop of whipped cream or plain yogurt. Red, white and blue star sprinkles add a festive touch. (You could also get this same effect with small scoops of raspberry or watermelon sorbet and vanilla ice cream, scattered with fresh blueberries.)

Use a melon baller to get perfectly round scoops from your watermelon, then use the scraps to make a creamy watermelon smoothie or watermelon sorbet.
