Ingredients:

  • 1 large watermelon
  • 6 Weet-Bix™ wheat biscuits
  • 1/2 cup plain unsweetened yoghurt
  • to serve, sunflower seeds

Method:

  1. To make the watermelon syrup, cut half of the watermelon into cubes, leaving the skin on. Place in a saucepan, and heat on stove on a low heat. The watermelon will begin to break down, but use a spoon or fork to help mash up the pieces.
  2. Once the watermelon has become mushy, allow to simmer for 20 minutes. Drain the mix through a fine sieve, lined with a piece of clean muslin. Leave to drain to get all the liquid out. Discard the leftover pith and seeds. Pour the liquid back into a clean saucepan. Simmer for another 20 minutes until the liquid has reduced by half. Allow to cool, pour in clean bottle or jug and store in the fridge.
  3. Divide Weet-Bix™ wheat biscuits between two bowls. Top with slices of fresh watermelon, a spoonful of yoghurt and sprinkle with sunflower seeds. Drizzle over the watermelon syrup to taste.
