This is the easiest of raw Halloween treats. The famous Watermelon Brain!!!!! This has been around for a while, but in case you missed it, here are some step by step instructions for creating a brain from a watermelon.
Be sure to check my Healthy Raw Halloween Recipes for more raw party ideas.
If you are short on time, this takes about 20 minutes. It can be made a head (hehe) of time and kept wrapped in a clean damp cloth in the fridge:)
1 small seedless watermelon
Also needed, a peeler and a knife
1. Wash and peel watermelon. I used my soft fruit peeler.
2. Look at the melon and see which side will make the best looking brain:) I put the narrow oval looking side on top. Cut a small slice off the bottom so it is stable.
3. Using a very thin or sharp knife make the first cut down the middle. Widen the cut slightly by making another cut next to the first one at a slight angle about 1/8 inch away. This will allow you to remove a V-shaped sliver of melon and reveal the red um...flesh..underneath:)
4. Using a picture as a guide, continue to carve out slivers of melon in a brain-like pattern.
Hope you enjoy this healthy raw Halloween treat!
