This shouldn’t even have its own blog post; it’s so easy and requires no skills whatsoever. none. zilch. Well, maybe some decent knife skills … 😉
Summer is right around the corner and gooood watermelon will be available everywhere! I plan on eating lots and lots of (Knox Co. Ind!) watermelon in the upcoming months, so it’s time to start researching the recipes! I found a recipe for the large watermelon “cake”. Looks super! However, I need something a little smaller. Something that I can enjoy without having a huge party (even though that would be fun 😉 )
I wanted to start with a “pie” version. It’s the perfect size and it’s delicious … and refreshing … and FILLING! One slab of “pie” is only 1pp … no matter how thick your slices are!! & being a girl watching her weight and tracking those points, watermelon is my new best friend 🙂 Plus, there are soooo many variations you could do with this: top it with your favorite fruits of the season and enjoy guilt free.
Serving Size: 1 large slice
Points Per Serving: 1pp
1 small seedless watermelon
3C fat free cool whip
fruit of choice
1t finely shredded coconut (optional)
*If making for One: just use one thick slice of watermelon and top with 1/2C of cool whip. Dice up remaining watermelon for later use.
- With a sharp knife, cut both ends of a watermelon. Then, stand it on one end.
- Starting at the top, slice off the rind and white parts of the watermelon.
- When the rind is completely off, turn the watermelon on its side and slice 6 discs (these can be as thick as you’d like 🙂 )
- Top each slice with 1/2C of cool whip and make it beautiful with the fruit and coconut.
Slice each disc like a pie … and eat the whole thing!
