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.

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.
