watermelon “pie”

watermelon "pie" | my skinny sweet tooth

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.


watermelon “pie”:
Servings: 6*
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!
