Lightly sweetened cantaloupe roasted to perfection. Made with only three ingredients, Maple Roasted Cantaloupe is a tasty way to enjoy a tasty fruit. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, snack time, dessert, or anytime.
Fruit is tasty any time of the day. You can peel it, mash it, take it for lunch, and simply enjoy it. Sometimes you just want to try it a little different. A perfect way is to roast it in the oven.
Something amazing happens when a cantaloupe is roasted – a naturally sweet fruit becomes even sweeter. Seriously, it turns into a perfect treat. With lightly singed edges, Maple Roasted Cantaloupe is a wonderful and healthy way to enjoy a tasty fruit.
How to Make Maple Roasted Cantaloupe
Transforming cantaloupe into a sweet treat is a quick and easy three-ingredient recipe. All you need to do is place cut up pieces of cantaloupe on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Toss the cantaloupe pieces with maple syrup and vanilla extract and bake. Adding maple syrup gives the melon an almost caramelized coating and the vanilla helps to amp up the flavours of maple syrup, making it sweeter and richer.
After 20 minutes in the oven, you have a healthy, sweet treat. When you take a bite, each piece is so soft it almost melts in your mouth. Yum!
Maple Roasted Cantaloupe Makes A Tasty Breakfast and Dessert
When Maple Roasted Cantaloupe is warm and fresh out the oven, it is amazing. On its own, it’s a healthy treat that you can definitely feel good about. But it’s also a great topping for other delicious foods like yogurt or ice cream.
When Maple Roasted Cantaloupe is added to a bowl of vanilla yogurt, you have a perfectly tasty breakfast or snack. Add it to ice cream and you have a wonderful, fruity dessert.
My favourite way to enjoy it is with a cup of yogurt and fresh mint. Now it’s time for you to find your favourite way to eat Maple Roasted Cantaloupe.
