No Sacrafice Summer Dessert

Looking for an alternative to that boring fruit platter to bring to this weekend’s BBQ?

You’re trying to eat healthy, trying to lose weight, and you’ve been asked to bring a dessert to the party.

Don’t be that guy.

You who I’m talking about: Β the person who grabs the ‘ready-made’, tasteless, cut ‘weeks ago’ fruit platter to toss unceremoniously on the dessert table as they head for the beer cooler…why, this may even be you.Β *Gasp*

Well, I’ve got an alternative for you that will have you the person forever hailed as, “That guy who brought the AWESOME watermelon cake last summer!” …

This thing is ridiculously simple,Β and seriously inexpensive to make.

First, a few words on the health benefits of watermelon.

I always thought that considering watermelon is made up of 92% water, it was minimal in its nutritional value…oh how wrong I was:

Watermelon Health Benefits

  • Valuable source of Vit A & Vit C

  • Excellent source of Lypocene ~ an antioxidant that helps to prevent hardening of the arteries, and prevents many types of cancer

  • ContainsΒ Cucurbitacin E, a plant compound that prevents inflammation

  • Helps to improve digestion

  • Promotes beautiful skin & hair (collagen/protein/beta-carotene)

Fresh Watermelon Cake

Peeled watermelon trimmed into ‘cake’ shape

2 Cups heavy whipping cream

2 TBSP extra fine sugar (or run regular sugar through a processor for 45 seconds)

Strawberries/blackberries/slivered almonds for garnish

Whip cream and sugar to stiff peaks and ‘frost’ watermelon. Garnish with berries, and press almonds gently up the sides.
