Review This Recipe
For the Diabetic recipes, you need to include the carbs and calories and fat. VERY IMPORTANT for us poor souls with this disease.
We have used a "cannonball" watermelon for the basket, instead of the cantaloupe, although cantaloupe was used as a basket ingredient. Cut the melon in half before attempting to scallop the basket rim. Side note: Cantaloupe halves make great chili bowls.
Fruit Filled Cantaloupe Basket
I put fruits in my husbands lunches and I like to give him a variety....this adds alittle kick to the taste of plain old fruit. I added pepper and then i mixed it all up. And because it was for my husbands lunch I did not use the cantaloupe basket, I just put the fruit mixture into a plastic sandwich box.
Good and healthy, too!!!
Great Healthy Meal
This a great recipe, especially if you don't have too much time and still want to eat healthy. My kids usually despise eating anything but junk food. I decided to give it a try and they loved it. It tastes absolutely delicious, especially if you choose all ripe fruits. It's really great!
