Watermelon Health Benefits

Watermelon fruit pizzas make a healthy summer treat and a low-calorie dessert. They are made with real fruit, so they are rich in antioxidants and other nutrients. And, unlike other sweet summer snacks, fruit pizzas are made without preservatives. Following are some of the benefits you’ll enjoy when eating healthy fruit pizzas make with this popular summertime fruit.

  • A low-calorie food, watermelon has just 46 calories per 1 cup serving.
  • Watermelon is a good source of Vitamin C, copper, potassium, Vitamin B5 and Vitamin A.
  • These healthy fruit pizzas are sweetened with coconut yogurt instead of sugar. Therefore, they are a healthier, plant based dessert option.
  • As watermelon contains a lot of water, it helps you stay hydrated as you eat.
  • This summer fruit is a source of citrulline — an amino acid which may improve exercise performance.
  • Watermelon is filled with antioxidants which help combat free radicals that cause cellular damage.
  • It promotes heart health thanks to the magnesium, potassium, and vitamins A, B6, and C content. As well as lycopene may help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • The combination of the above mentioned ingredients found in this vegan watermelon pizza recipe can also reduce body inflammation and oxidative stress.
  • Just as using vitamins A and C in skin care can help reduce the appearance of aging, consuming foods rich in vitamin C may also help your body produce collagen necessary for youthful looking skin and strong, healthy looking hair.

Watermelon Pizza Variations

This vegan watermelon pizza recipe is exceptionally tasty. However, as not everyone enjoys the same types of fruit as toppings — much like traditional pizzas — you can swap out some of the ingredients with those that your prefer. Following are easy substitutions you can make when creating this delicious fruit pizza recipe:

  • I used coconut yogurt to make this a vegan fruit pizza. However, if you aren’t vegan, you can use regular or Greek yogurt in its place.
  • Rather than using yogurt to create the fruit pizza “sauce,” try swapping it out with another ingredient all together. You can also use equal parts of softened cream cheese and whipped cream or Cool Whip in place of the yogurt.
  • Lots of amazing fruits go well when paired with watermelon — just like fruit salad! Therefore, you can swap out any of the berries called for in this watermelon pizza recipe with lemon soaked apple chunks, orange segments, kiwi, peach chunks or figs. You can also use different berries such as blueberries in place of or in addition to any of the toppings called for in this dessert. Or try cantaloupe, honeydew, segmented mandarin oranges or grapes.
  • Want an extra sweet treat? Drizzle the finished dessert with chocolate sauce or caramel. Or, for a healthier alternative, use maple syrup or honey so as to avoid adding unrefined sugars.
  • Watermelon goes great with feta cheese! If you eat dairy, then consider adding crumbled feta along with the chosen toppings.

  • 1 Watermelon, Medium Sized
  • 1 Cup Coconut Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup Raspberries
  • 1/2 Cup Black Cherries
  • 1/2 Cup Blackberries
  • 1/2 Cup Strawberries
  • 2 Tablespoon Coconut Shavings or Flakes (optional)

Use a large, sharp knife to cut the watermelon crosswise. Slice off a chunk of the watermelon about 2-3 inches thick. Then cut additional chunks as needed to make more fruit dessert pizzas.
Cut the circle of watermelon into triangles or pizza shaped slices.
Use the back of a spoon or a silicone spatula to spread a layer of coconut yogurt onto the middle of each slice of watermelon you created.
Wash the fruit. Remove the stems from the strawberries and cut in half.
Place the fresh berries and fruit like on the top of each slice. Add as much or as little as you like. Think of it as a fun fruit salad! Don’t be afraid to get creative or experiment with other types of fruit.
Finally, sprinkle coconut shavings or flakes on top with the berry topping. This adds a more complex flavor than if you were just using fruit.
  • If desired, you can drizzle this sweet summertime dessert with honey or maple syrup just prior to serving. Or add a bit of chocolate or caramel drizzle if you enjoy a bit of extra sweetness.
