Red, White, & Blueberry Watermelon Stars Recipe
These cute stars can be made the night before serving and refrigerated. They are perfect for taking to a potluck gathering, as well as for serving at home. The fact that they are mostly fruit and only 58 calories each will insure that they will disappear quickly.
6 slices watermelon, 1" thick (the amount of slices can vary, of course, depending on the size of the watermelon)
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
- Using a 3" star cookie cutter, cut 24 stars from the watermelon slices.
- Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and lime juice until light and smooth.
- Transfer the mixture to a decorating bag with a star tip (if a decorating bag isn't available, just spoon some of the mixture onto the stars) and squeeze about a tablespoon into the center of each star.
- Top each with three blueberries.
- Cover and refrigerate before serving.
