Watermelon pizza

A pretty sight right?

Hot summer days in Norway makes me crave watermelon and so I ended up making a pizza version of it! Now when the temperatures are at 30 degrees, it’s crucial to be hydrated. This watermelon pizza will definitely help you out with that. Cheers to summer, sunny days and this watermelon pizza!

Ingredients

• Watermelon

• Cherries

• Dried mango

• Mint leaves

• Dark chocolate

• Nut butter

• Pecan nuts

Instructions

1. Cut watermelon into pizza slices.

2. Remove the stones from the cherries and cut them into halves.

3. Add dried mango bits and mint leaves.

4. Spread some pecan nuts, nut butter and grate the dark chocolate to finish!

Mmmmmm
Colorful and tasty, and it’s pretty to serve if you wonder what to make for a summer party!

Watermelon keeps you hydrated, contains antioxidants like dark chocolate also do, that contributes with vitamin C which helps prevent cell damage from free radicals. This refreshing fruit also has cucurbitacin E, a plant compound with anti inflammatory effects! And so do cherries! It’s a reason why we need to eat more plant based right? Cherries are a good source of fiber and potassium, which keeps your digestive system healthy and helps you with muscle contraction. For athletes and active people especially, this is a super fruit as it may help relieve exercise induced muscle pain, damage and inflammation!

Again, cheers to this watermelon pizza!

With love and care, Melanie x
