Whip up a healthy watermelon fruit pizza with cream cheese frosting in a matter of minutes!
Who’s going to be the star of the next BBQ/Memorial Day/4th of July???
Just show up with a watermelon fruit pizza with cream cheese frosting and everyone will love you!
As an added bonus, this is really simple to make. Like really simple. I’m talking it can be done in about 15 minutes.
How’s that for easy?
Please use real whipping cream for this recipe. It’s so easy to make and it really does taste different from the frozen stuff.
But if you must use the frozen stuff, I would adjust the amount of powdered sugar you add to the frosting. Start with just a 1/4 cup and add more as needed.
I can’t really tell you how many slices of watermelon the frosting recipe will frost. If your watermelon is sweet, you may need less frosting. If your watermelon turns out a bit tasteless (I’m sorry! Such a bummer, isn’t it?), you may find you want to add a thicker layer of frosting.
Your watermelon may also be wider than the watermelon I purchased. If that is the case, your frosting may not cover two slices.
IF you are worried about having enough cream cheese frosting, double the recipe. Any additional cream cheese frosting can be used as a dip for strawberries, or spread on a chocolate wafer, or sandwiched between two graham crackers, or just eaten with a spoon!
- 1 seedless watermelon
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
- Berries or other fruit for toppings
- Cut two one-inch wide slices from the middle of the watermelon.
- Beat whipping cream until stiff peak form.
- Add sugar, cream cheese and lemon zest. Beat just until smooth and combined.
- Frost watermelon slices with cream cheese mixture. Top with your choice of fruit toppings.
I used strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries to top my pizza – making it perfect for Memorial Day or 4th of July. But you could also use peaches, bananas, kiwi…. choose any of your favorite fruit combos!
