Summer is at the doorstep and kids are out of the school. Summer can be crazy and exhausting .But you can make the summer interesting and preserve some good memories of childhood. It is the great time to help children learn new things. Children also thrive on opportunity to try new things. Today I am sharing a dish which takes a few minutes to prepare. The special thing is you can involve your kid to prepare this dish. They will learn something new , and will be very happy to prepare this.
33rd foodie Monday blog hop has introduced a very unique theme i.e.No Fire Cooking. The dish which doesn’t involve cooking and baking. In summer I personally like to stay away from Fire. So I chose a dish which is perfect pleasant treat for summer, as nobody has any interest to go to kitchen and cook. Refreshing food is the only way to cool down.
Summer has a beautiful gift for us i.e. watermelon, which helps us stay hydrated and cool during heat. Watermelon is loaded with water plus it is an excellent source of electrolytes, sodium and potassium. So here I present chilled watermelon cup cakes to beat the heat.
Kids friendly and adult pleasuring ,No bake water melon cupcake requires few minutes to prepare and I bet this dish will turn your table into a heaven. It is a perfect treat on hot days. No matter how it is prepared, how you eat or how you present- this dessert is always a pleasing and refreshing treat.
