  • 8 cups cubed watermelon, about 1" in size
  • 4 cups hulled and quartered strawberries
  • 3 cups blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 2 cups pineapple stars
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 4 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • Chopped mint leaves

  1. Start by placing the fruits in a large bowl. 
  2. To make the pineapple stars, cut the pineapple into 1/4" slices. Use a sharp star-shaped cutter to create stars. Make sure to use the smallest cutter in the set! 
  3. In a small bowl, combine the chopped mint, lime juice, and powdered sugar. With the back of a spoon, muddle the mint to release its flavor.
  4. Then, drizzle the mixture over the fruits and gently fold everything together. Make sure all the fruits are coated.
  5. Next, place the bowl in the fridge to chill and let the fruit juices mingle. This can be made a few hours prior to serving. Just be sure to fold right before eating. Enjoy!
