Melon Jello Fruit Boats

I made one my favorite summer treats again last night. I guess it had been so long since I made them last that my boys thought it was a new treat again! That of course was an extra plus. These melon creations are the perfect way to get your little ones to consume a large quantity of fruit. I think my kiddos would have eaten every slice in the first sitting if I would have let them.

Ingredients: 1 melon (cantaloupe, honeydew, or small seedless watermelon)
2 (3 oz) packages of flavored gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup sliced fresh fruit

Begin by cutting your melon in half and carefully scooping out the seeds. Shave a thin slice off the bottom of the melon so it will sit flat during preparation.

Dissolve gelatin in boiling water and then stir in the applesauce and fresh fruit. Divide the gelatin mixture equally into both melon halves.

I used blue gelatin with fresh strawberries and blackberries
 Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Cut into slices just before serving.

Place in Fridge

Slice into pieces and enjoy
The fruit flavors and jello combinations are endless. Enjoy! We sure did!
