These cute and tasty sailing boats are a fun project that the kids will adore making with you.
2 small Lebanese (short) cucumbers
260 g (914 oz/1 cup) plain full-fat yoghurt
6 drops liquid stevia or 2 teaspoons your sweetener of choice
pinch of Celtic sea salt
1 tablespoon chopped dill
1 red capsicum (pepper), seeded
toothpicks, for decorating
Cut the cucumbers in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds.
Combine the yoghurt, stevia, salt and dill in a bowl. Spoon into the hollowed-out cucumbers.
Cut triangles for sails out of the capsicum. Skewer each sail with a toothpick and stick the other end in the cucumber.
Safety tip: Always remember to remove the toothpick before consuming.
Health tip: Cucumbers are mostly water, so they’re a great way to keep the body hydrated. They’re also a good source of B vitamins, so they’ll give your child a little energy boost.
