Watermelon Fries with Coconut Lime Dip

Watermelon Fries with Coconut Lime Dip

These Watermelon Fries with Coconut Lime Dip are a great Gluten Free, Vegan and Healthy Summer Snack that’s perfect for the whole family.

KEY INGREDIENTS TO MAKE THESE WATERMELON FRIES

Watermelon – Watermelon is, of course, the star of the show in this recipe! I break down everything you need to know about how to choose a watermelon down below.

Tajin Seasoning – Tajin is a Mexican seasoning that I am totally obsessed with and has a mixture of very simply ingredients including salt, chili and lime. Don’t have tajin seasoning? No problem. You can totally swap in salt, chili powder and lime zest if you already have it on hand.

Coconut Yogurt – I use a non-dairy coconut yogurt to make this recipe vegan. But you can absolutely try out a dairy coconut flavoured yogurt as well.

Lime – Lime zest and juice totally make this recipe come alive and gives it that fresh summer flavour.

Coconut Sugar – This gives the coconut lime dip some extra sweetness but its optional if you find your watermelon is sweet enough.

Ingredients

  • 1 watermelon rind removed and cut into long fry-like shapes
  • 2 tsp Tajin Classic Seasoning

Dip:

  • 1 cup coconut yogurt
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar or to taste

Preparation

  • In a bowl, combine yogurt, lime juice and zest and coconut sugar. Set aside.
  • On a plate, scatter watermelon fries and sprinkle Tajin classic seasoning.
  • Serve with dip and enjoy!

Incredible. So good, my catering company has started making them for events. Thanks

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I MAKE THIS RECIPE IF I WANT TO PREPARE IT FOR ENTERTAINING GUESTS?

I’d suggest cutting up the watermelon into strips a few days in advance but I recommend adding the seasoning prior to serving.

IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COCONUT FLAVOURED YOGURT OR YOGURT WITH COCONUT MILK AS THE BASE?

Yes! There is a difference. For this recipe I recommend using dairy-free yogurt made with a coconut base. However, if you don’t have that available you cant totally experiment with other yogurts as well.
