  • ½ large honeydew melon cut into French-fry shapes


  • ¾ cup plain non-dairy yogurt
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds
  • 1-2 tsp. maple syrup
  • ½ cup frozen cherries thawed


  • 2 tbsp freeze dried cherries pulverized in a food processor
  • ½ tsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp lemon zest


  • Mix together the yogurt, lemon zest, juice, poppyseeds and maple syrup for the dip.
  • Puree the frozen cherries and swirl them on top of the dip.
  • To serve, top the fries with freeze-dried cherry dust, poppyseeds and lemon zest and serve with the dip.


  • To make cut the sticks for this easy summer melon fries, I literally just cut a honeydew melon into strips before cutting them into matchstick-sized sticks (offends and scraps are totally my snacks).
  • If you want to serve this to your little one without any added sugar from the maple syrup, just pull back a touch on the lemon and add a little extra of the naturally sweet cherry puree to balance things out. It's the perfect refreshing and safe snack for BLW, for your toddlers, kids, and adults, alike.
  • Use a blender or food processor to puree the cherries. If you do not have one, allow the frozen cherries to thaw a bit and mash with a fork, spoon, or potato masher.
