Celebrate National Watermelon Day with Watermelon Pizza Cake

August 3, 2018

Today is National Watermelon Day! I wrote earlier this summer about the many benefits of watermelon. Click here to read that blog. Made of almost 92% water, the fruit is full of Vitamins A, C, and antioxidants. In honor of this August 3 holiday, Kelly’s Choice intern Celina Rescott came up with this recipe. We’re calling it pizza cake because some of us liked eating it the way you would eat a slice of pizza and some of us used a fork, the way you would eat a piece of cake. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!


  • SERVING SIZE: 1 slice
  • 1 Watermelon
  • 1/2 cup Low Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 tbsp. Honey or Maple Syrup
  • ¼ cup Strawberries sliced in half
  • ¼ cup Blueberries
  • 2 tbsp Granola of choice*
  1. Cut a slice of watermelon right out of the middle about 2-3 inches thick
  2. In a medium bowl combine Low-Fat Greek Yogurt, Vanilla, and Honey or Maple Syrup. Mix until well combined.
  3. Using a spatula, spread yogurt mixture on top of watermelon
  4. Arrange strawberries, blueberries, and granola over top the yogurt.
  5. Cut into 6-8 slices to serve cold!

*Choose a low sugar granola with minimal ingredients for the healthiest option!
