This Watermelon Sundae is a perfect summer treat for anyone, but it is super awesome when you are juggling multiple food allergies.
Instead of using ice cream we use scoops of watermelon and then add a mountain of delicious toppings. Sometimes we also add soy or coconut ice cream in with the watermelon scoops too! Like most food allergy planning I always advise to make a list of all the things you can have and work with that. This has been a fun go to dessert because it’s so versatile and I love using all the fresh fruit from the farmers market during the summer.
Below is a list of delicious topping ideas. This is always evolving. Let me know if there are some toppings of deliciousness that you would add to this list.
Watermelon Sundae Toppings –
Bananas – Cut into circles or cut in half lengthwise if you are going to make a Banana Split!
Dark Chocolate Chips – A Tasty Antioxidant Boost!
Nesquik chocolate syrup
Allergy friendly yogurt (I’ve used soy yogurt)
Okay… all the berries you can have!
Whipped Topping (We use Soy Whip for a milk allergy friendly alternative! )
Cherry on Top (Pitted!)
Crumbled Graham Crackers or Cookies of Choice (We use lots of Oreos)
Honey or Agave Syrup
Favorite Jam, Jelly, Preserves or Fruit Syrup
