Easy, Healthy, Summertime Snack for Kids: Watermelon Pizza

 From now on, whenever I buy a watermelon, I will always slice off a chunk and make a watermelon pizza. This was such a fun, easy, healthy snack that looks very appealing to kids (and adults). I think it would be fun to bring to a potluck, too. I found this recipe in the Ruralite magazine and I'm so glad I gave it a try.

Watermelon Pizza Recipe:

Ingredients:

One thick slice of watermelon (a cut from the middle of the watermelon is always the sweetest)
Strawberry jam
Unsweetened coconut
White chocolate chips
Nuts (I used raw sliced almonds and pecans)
Raisins (optional)

I simply sliced a thick piece of watermelon, then carefully removed the rind. Spread some strawberry jam over the top of the watermelon slice, to be used as the sauce. Sprinkle some coconut to act as the cheese, then add your toppings.

Don't forget to let your kids help! I've learned that if they help, they will be much more likely to try whatever you are making.


God Bless,
Jackie

Interesting.... I wonder if my kids would got for it? Bethany doesn't like nuts too much, but watermelon she does like. We'll have to give it a try!

I have a cheap canon powershot sx500 which I am not overly satisfied with after getting much better pictures from my first kodak camera. Still it works so much better than my last camera as far as getting the picture taken. I really should have sent the last one back while it was still covered by the warranty cuz' I think something was wrong with it. it took great pictures, it just took forever to take them.

I think your pictures are getting better. Isn't it fun to be able to play around with your camera without having to worry about the cost of developing them all just to see them?

Ruth,
You can put whatever you want on the pizza. I bet there are other toppings she could put on besides nuts.

Digital camera's are SO nice! I love my little camera even though it is inexpensive. When I get this one mastered, then I may move up to a better model.
