Watermelon season is here and I have to say, I am very excited! Who doesn’t love a beautiful, juicy, colorful watermelon on their plate? I feel like just the color alone adds a bit of sunshine to my meal. I don’t know if it is just me or if you feel this way as well, but do you ever feel just a little intimidated buying a whole watermelon? Don’t get me wrong, I love watermelon. But sometimes I worry that I will come home with a huge watermelon, slice it all up and then find my family getting bored of eating watermelon in the same exact way day after day. Sure, I could buy half a watermelon or already cubed and sliced watermelon to reduce the amount I buy at once, but nothing tastes as good as a freshly sliced whole watermelon, and I right?
To get over my ridiculous fear of purchasing a whole watermelon, I decided to come up with some creative ways to enjoy this delicious fruit. One of my favorite discoveries this summer was the creation of my Frosted Watermelon Pizza. It’s so pretty to look at, amazing to taste, and makes such as fun appetizer or dessert at any summer get together. It’s also so easy to make that my little guy pretty much single handedly made one himself (but since he has a habit of licking and eating ingredients while he plays chef, we let him keep his version as his own individual pie!) This pizza can make the perfect snack and it also makes a great addition to your little one’s lunch box. It’s packed full of fiber, protein, and antioxidants to keep your energy lasting all throughout the day.
Frosted Watermelon Pizza Recipe
- 1 large round slice of watermelon (1 inch thick, cut from the center of the watermelon)
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup sliced strawberries
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
Using a pizza cutter, slice the watermelon into even ‘pizza slices.’ Spread the Greek yogurt evenly over the top of the watermelon. Top with strawberries and blueberries. Serve chilled and enjoy!
